Despite Fable’s one time position as a poster boy (or girl) for the Xbox console we haven’t seen a main series entry since Fable 3 in 2010. Aside from the (frankly disappointing) Fable: The Journey and Fable Heroes and the cancellation of Fable Legends, the series has been quiet for some time.
Hope for another entry into the series was rekindled though as Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Phil Spencer responded to a question from series fan @dragen_Light on Twitter.
Regarding the possibility of Fable 4, Spencer said:
Nothing to announce right now but I do think the IP has a lot of places it could go.

The response sent fans into a frenzy, who took this to mean another Fable spin off game, or even another main entry could be in the works for future release.
The likelihood of another Fable game soon is pretty pretty low given the closure of long-time developer Lionhead Studios last year. But who can blame people for getting excited?
Hands up in the comments – who would love another Fable game?
