Fable Legends Delayed Until 2016, Open Beta Launching Next Spring

by on December 14, 2015

Lionhead’s free-to-play take on their own RPG adventure series Fable has been delayed until 2016, with an open beta set to launch next spring.

Fable Legends is currently in a closed beta state and was expected to launch before the end of the year, but a statement from Lionhead Studios says the game is “the most ambitious game we’ve ever created at Lionhead” and that the team “didn’t anticipate just how big Fable Legends is becoming.”

The statement continued: “The team is working exceptionally hard and we’re proud of how far the game has come. We’re operating our closed beta 24/7 and have added lots more features, quests, creatures, and heroes to play. Hundreds of thousands of fans have participated in the beta so far, and we can’t wait to open it up for all of you to play. To achieve our aspirations for Fable Legends, we’ve moved our open beta release to spring of 2016. So to all of you who have been playing in our closed beta, and to all of you who have been waiting patiently for the game to release into open beta, we want to thank you on behalf of everyone at Lionhead.”
