Fable: Ex-Employees of Rockstar Games, Ubisoft, BioWare and Rocksteady Are Working on the New Game
The recently announced action RPG Fable is being developed by Playground Games, the creator of the Forza Horizon racing series. But who’s exactly working on the new title? We will tell you in the analysis below.
Playground Games hired over 170 developers in 2018 to create the new Fable game. It makes no sense to list all of them, but it is interesting that the main positions of the project are occupied by people who have influence in the industry.
Who’s working on Fable 4?
So, the creative director of Fable is Ralph Fulton, who worked on all Forza Horizons. The team also includes other people who previously worked on the racing series: level design director Craig Littler, senior game designer Grant Orban and audio director Douglas Watson.
The project’s story team consists of former developers of Batman: Arkham Knight namely Martin Lancaster as Narrative Director, Craig Owens as Lead Writer and Kim MacAskill as Senior Writer.
The chief designer of the new Fable game is Will Kennedy, who has worked on Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online for eight years. The main game designer is Juan Fernandez de Simon, a former employee of Ninja Theory (where he worked on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice) and Tequila Works. And the role of the main quest designer is occupied by the level designer of Borderlands 3 and Hunter Wright.
Responsible for the game’s user interface is Joe Mckernan, who previously worked at Playground Games on Forza Horizon and at Guerrilla Games on Horizon Zero Dawn. Lead Environment Artist is Adam Olsson, formerly of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. He is assisted by Mass Effect 3 and Dead Space 2 artist Scotty Brown. At the same time, Tom Isaksan is the lead character artist – he has Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands and several Hitman games on his track record.
In addition, the new Fable game’s Senior Producer is Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Star Wars Battlefront II creator Ian Mitchell. And in the chair of the production director sits Sean Eyestone, developer of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Fable will release on PC and Xbox Series X, but its launch window has not been confirmed yet.
