Every one of the first three Fable games sold better than its predecessor. The third Fable got a little lower metascore than Fable II and immediately someone in management decides that they have to do something different: something with the fad of the time - motion control. Now they want to use the fad of the today - asymmetric gaming. Next time it will be the next fad - VR. All along the public who bought the first games only want more of the same.
A regular Fable would get me hyped, this not so much!
