Even though Fable
creator Peter Molyneux
left Lionhead Studios last March, he still has a lot to say about the gaming industry and genre he helped revolutionize.
In an interview with IGN
, Molyneux talks candidly about the upcoming new Xbox and the possibility of a Fable
"I can see that that would work. The thing about Fable
is that it was such a rich world. It was, well, what the name says it is. It's all about Fable and Albion and this idea of legends and humour. RPGs are great for MMO transitions. I can see that that concept works, and works quite well. I think the charm of Fable was in the feeling of the world and definitely the humour. If they keep that in an MMO, then there's no reason why it shouldn't do reasonably well, I don't think."
Of course, Molyneux's successor at Lionhead is an MMO vet himself
, so let's all hope that the MMO pieces come together.
