    yeah. they've been strangely quiet about this game recently, especially considering they touted it as part of their "Greatest Lineup" for this Holiday.

    It's an Xbox exclusive so the Windows thing is a bonus if anything. No reason to expect to play it anywhere else.

    Doing a free MMO was a terrible idea from the start. Games like these are dropping like flies and bleeding money. Not to mention the IP itself was quite tarnished after several mediocre games. They should have just done Fable 4 with high production values and a great story, and the series might have been saved. The whole MMO angle apparently killed the whole studio as it is.

    Not only have they canceled this, it seems they've completely shut down Lionhead Studios. Very strange and very out of nowhere move.

    Wait, this was a MMO?

    This game was practically done, wasn't it? Seems like an uber waste of money to not even release a finished game.

    I thought the game was in public beta? Usually that means the game is fairly close to being done.

    The studio itself is still closed, though. They basically just reshuffled all the employees within other studios and such. It's good that means less jobs lost, but in the end, Lionhead is still dead. It's just weird. I wonder if something else happened, or was happening, behind the scenes, because for them to just flat out close a studio near the end of a development cycle of a title without at least finishing it seems like there's something up.

    ^ yeah. especially when Fable Legends was so prominently featured in their "Jump Ahead" and "Greatest Lineup of Games" promos last year.
