Fable 3 Announced (Accidentally)

Fable 3 accidentally announced xbox 360 game jonathan ross via twitterJonathan Ross (British television presenter for the BBC, amongst other things) accidentally announced work on Fable 3 yesterday via his twitter account.

Wossy: “Goodnight all. Must go to bed. Got asked to do voice in Fable 3 tonight. Subarashi. Oyasuminasia. Woss out.”

ScottRhodie: “@Wossy What Fable 3!!!?!? Has it been confirmed?”

Wossy: “@ScottRhodie yes they are doing it. Charlie Brooker said he would do a voice for it to ! Great fun !!”

Wossy: “Good morning. Today i must file DVD’s, write a piece for The Times, apologize to Peter Molyneux then go Thorpe Park for SAW rollercoaster !”

Oilcan: “@Wossy Why do you have to apologise to Molyneux?”

Wossy: “@oilcan because I think I revealed something that was not officially announced yet…”

RossSanty: “@Wossy y u need to apologize to peter molyneux??? Cuz u let slip about fable 3??”

Wossy: “@RossSanty yes. No. there is no Fable 3. I don’t know. help me.”

After discussing this on various forums it has come to my/our decision that it is more likely that Jonathan Ross is actually providing voice talent to Fable 2 DLC or an even bigger expansion (much like Shivering Isles in Oblivion – or “The Lost Chapters” of the original Fable game).

Whether this is going to be an expansion or a new Fable 3 game I am very excited. Inevitably there will be a Fable 3 game, but this feels much too early to begin work on a sequel. Whatever the outcome, I cannot wait!

Matt has been hooked on games since he received his first console (a SEGA Mega Drive) for his 7th birthday. He now spends most of his time on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, but will use any excuse for a retro gaming night.
