Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Rumor: Playground Games(Forza Horizon Devs) New Game will be a Microsoft Exclusive. And it's a Established IP

"It’s exclusive and it’s a returning MS IP.


Go figure."

We Know that they are working on an Open World RPG so I think its a Fable reboot.

Definitely seems likely that it's a Fable reboot then since we already know from job listing that it's an Action RPG.



This is a quote from their job listing a few months ago.
"Playground Games is looking for a Creative Director to setup and lead a world-class design team on an entirely new AAA open-world action / RPG project."

If its a new Fable I will be so happy.



Exclusive or otherwise, we'll have to wait and see how PG does with something outside of racing, especially considering that there was always a lot of help from Turn 10. This game will be a big chance for them to either cement themselves as a truly great developer, or alternatively, prove they're a bit of a one trick pony.

A proper new Fable game (not that garbage that they tried to make and failed in the process) would make me so happy! The Xbox is severely lacking in exclusives and especially in the RPG genre so anything at this point would be greatly appreciated.

From the job listing I don't think it will be a traditional Fable game. I expect a Witcher meets Fable type game.



Just to throw one out in left field, what if they're finishing up the existing investment on Scalebound and releasing it? It kind of fits the whole Action RPG/"returning" IP rumours as well.

It isn't likely and I don't believe that's the case but it would be interesting.



He also says its very early, which goes with the new studio opening. Being new genre and open world I think we wont hear from this game till 2020/2021 and will be for next generation. Hopefully the game is not rushed by whoever is publishing it.

Its not 100% that it will be exclusive, but I can see it happening. I hope its not Fable, because I am not the biggest fan of the series.

 

Its actually weird if Microsoft is funding 2nd party studio to open new studio to make exclusive RPG game, while closing their RPG studio and cancelling Scalebound where they put a lot of money in.



It sounds like it ain't releasing before 2020/2021 at least ... GO GO Xbox Two ?
