The HD remake of Peter Molyneux's most prized fantasy adventure lands next Spring...
Microsoft Game Studios and Lionhead Studios have today announced the official UK release date of their upcoming role-playing video game Fable Anniversary. A high-definition port of Fable, an Xbox fantasy adventure title designed by Peter Molyneux which went on to spawn a franchise of sequels, spin-offs and novelised instalments, Anniversary was originally due for release this year but suffered a delay in the lead-up to the Xbox One's launch.
The product won't be launching on One, however. Instead, Anniversary is the main Xbox 360 exclusive title from Microsoft in the early stages of 2014, with future projects from the first-party studio expected to branch between the two generations until 2016. 343 Industries' Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary went down a storm with its fanbase in 2011, so there's every indication that this HD edition of one of the best loved Xbox RPGs could be a financial hit for both its publishers and developers. Expect to see a full review of the title here at On-Screen in the New Year.
Fable Anniversary retails exclusively for Xbox 360 on February 7th, 2014.
