Fable Fortune CCG Kickstarter Is Essentially A Pre-Order Program

Fable Fortune CCG Kickstarter Is Essentially A Pre-Order Program

When Microsoft decided to close Lionhead in April, the big question that lingered surrounded the fate of the Fable franchise. It wasn’t long after that we learned the publisher had opted to hold onto the fantasy action-RPG property rather than sell it.

While it’s unclear what long-term plans Microsoft has for Fable, for now, it is content to let a group of former Lionhead developers make use of it. The new Flaming Fowl Studios is continuing an idea that was secretly under development by a small team at Lionhead. The game was close to announcement and will be rolling out to backers in July and August if funded.

The studio says that it needs the funds to afford monthly costs on the road to closed beta. The company may also need additional funding, even if the campaign is successful. “However depending on the total achieved we may still need to look elsewhere to organise the final funding but we don't believe this would be an issue,” the company writes.
