Never one to exaggerate, Lionhead’s Peter Molyneux claims the next Fable will “amaze”… so long as there is a next Fable.
Speaking in a post-BAFTA interview with CVG, Molyneux said that “I have a very clear idea where Fable will go in the future. Trying to be diplomatic, I think that whatever we do next with Fable, we should just amaze people with the quality.
“If we go on, we’re not just going to make another Fable, we’re going to make something that stands head and shoulders up with anybody else out there – the best of the best – in terms of its technology, its drama and its storytelling.”
Of course, we’ve heard these kinds of comments from Molyneux before – not least in the run up to Fable III’s launch. Speaking about the problems and mixed reception that Fable III received at launch, Molyneux said:
“I totally blame myself, not anyone upstairs, who all did a wonderful job. [After Fable 2’s reception] my expectations were sky high. The planning was the problem. We had to look at the process.”
