I’ve been covering the game industry for close to 5 years, and so far, this has to be the strangest source for a rumor to come from. It seems a wedding announcement in The New York Times might have accidentally leaked Fable III is secretly in the works at Lionhead Studios.
Mr. (Joshua) Atkins, 34, is the lead game designer for Fable III, a video game series produced by Lionhead Studios in Guildford, England. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Kind of an odd location to reveal the next iteration in the Fable franchise. As of this writing, neither Microsoft nor Lionhead Studios has confirmed Fable III, but given how successful Fable I & II have been, we know it’s only a matter of time until it’s announced.
