One of the Xbox 360’s last big retail releases will miss its 2013 release date.
Developer Lionhead has confirmed that the game will now arrive in February 2014.
“We’ve been working hard for the past year to bring you the very best Fable Anniversary experience on Xbox 360,” it wrote. “We feel though, that we need a little more time in order to meet our ambitions and give you, the fans, the best game possible.
“I know I speak for everyone at Lionhead when I say that we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been up to, and it gives us great pleasure to let you know that you can expect Fable Anniversary to be both on-shelves and online via the Xbox Games Store in February 2014.
“It’s not easy making these decisions and I know that us asking you to wait a little longer whilst we get to play test the game every day is downright unfair, so over the next few weeks we’re going to be sharing with you more screenshots, more game footage and perhaps even some… top secret announcements!”
