Here’s one to raise your eyebrows. Curiously, the upcoming F2P Fable game, Fable Legends, has been removed from the Xbox One’s ‘Greatest Games Lineup’. The game releases next week on the 13th October, but does not feature in Microsoft’s latest Greatest Games Lineup video, despite having done so in all such material prior.

Watch the new TV commercial below and you will see that Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5 Guardians, and Gears of War Ultimate Edition all feature. Two of those games are already out with the other two to release later this year, however any mention of Fable Legends or its lead character has mysteriously disappeared without a word.

Is this a sign that Fable Legends simply won’t be a great game, or is something else going on here?

    I’ve tried and given it chances, but I’ve yet to find a Fable game that isn’t below mediocre. Which is a fancy and generous way of saying “All Fable games suck and the new one probably will too.”

    I mean…really? An overhyped free to play MOBA with microtransactions? I wouldn’t be surprised if it meets the same fate as Infinite Crisis.

    In fairness, it does have a few things going for it. Like no Peter Molyneux. And uh….well, it’s free.

      is it overhyped? It looks fun to play, but i woulnd’t call it overhyped. I dont see fanboys going apesh*t crazy because of this.

    Why would intend that. If a company knows that their game will be bad, they are not going to tell people it’s going to be bad.

      Now you’re thinking wrong; from what I’ve seen in this modern gaming day, no developers will release a game ’til it’s at least good enough for them, and one they would be proud to present to the world.

    It will be the worse Fable game ever and to be honest, it should’ve been closed….my two cents

    The game is pretty bad for free.
    The graphics will look good, not great but all else, it’s a Evolve game that’s worse than Evolve
