Microsoft's Fable reboot is showing signs of promising progress, with Playground Games hiring additional developers to speed up the project. Although details about the game are still quite scarce, it has already generated a lot of excitement within the Xbox community, hinting at a potential hit in the future.

This year's debut trailer for Fable, which was released last year, further ignited interest in the game. While we wait for more information, one well-informed source, known as NateTheHate, reveals that Xbox plans to launch the game sometime in 2025.

First announced in 2020, Fable has been the subject of a great deal of secrecy from Xbox regarding details of its progress. However, NateTheHate claims to have received information about a planned 2025 release date last year.

In addition, he also provided some insights into other games being developed for the Xbox platform. In addition to Fable, NateTheHate suggests that id Software could be working on a new game within the already famous franchise.

It is expected that this year we could see an official announcement of this project, whether it is a new Doom or Quake game. Also, there is mention of Contraband which could be released as early as 2024. However, most attention is drawn to Fable's 2025 launch window, which could be key to Microsoft's offering of first-party titles.

If these speculations turn out to be correct, Microsoft could take the opportunity to offer a more detailed look at the gameplay during the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase. It was recently confirmed that this exhibition will be repeated this year, with a return date scheduled for June 2024.

Regardless of the fact that there is no official announcement that the gameplay will be released then, we are convinced that Microsoft will save that presentation for June. With all this information, expectations are high and Xbox fans are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for these games, especially Fable, which could be one of the key titles for years to come.
