Fable 4 was officially announced in 2020, and no official release date has been set by Playground Games. Not much is known about Fable 4, and the developers haven’t talked much about the game. We do know that it’s created in the Forza game engine. It’s also likely been in development for at least five years, according to the context clues offered by Playground lead engineer Tom Gaulton’s work anniversary celebration tweet.

Playground is best known for Forza Horizon games, acclaimed racing simulations. In his review of Forza Horizon 5, GameSpot reviewer Alessandro Barbosa praised the game for continuing and iterating on the Forza Horizon brand of open-world racing games.
