Gamescomâ??09: While Fable 2 is set to return via five episodic titles

Molyneux unveils Fable 3

Microsoft’s Peter Molyneux has just taken to the stage at Microsoft’s supposedly low-key presentation at Gamescom in Cologne to announce the third chapter in its accessible RPG series Fable.

“The third child is always the problem child,” Molyneux has told the audience. “The third game of any series tends to be a bit of a lull. We want people to expect the unexpected.

“Fable III will be new, fresh and different. I think there’s something fundamentally wrong with RPGs like Fable. The mechanics have been around since the ‘80s. I’m going to take that foundation and throw it away.”

In addition, Molyneux confirmed that Microsoft is to re-release Fable II in five episodic chunks that can be downloaded individually. All five parts of Fable Episodic will be released on September 29th.
