In a tweet from the official Xbox Game Studios Publishing account, it read; “We’re excited to kick off something special tomorrow! Just give us one more day to prepare the chickens”
If this poultry reference wasn’t enough, a further tweet read: “We’d call it our Fable Anniversary, but that name was taken”.
Understandably, this sent Xbox fans into a flurry, wondering if new details would finally emerge on the mysterious upcoming RPG, which was announced in 2020 with a CGI trailer.
Later in the day, Xbox Game Studios Publishing was forced to clear up the misunderstanding in a tweet that read: “Sorry for any confusion! We don’t have any big game news tomorrow, or any info about @WeArePlayground’s upcoming Fable game”

The Fable reboot has had little revealed about it thus far, with only a CG trailer giving a glimpse of the game’s direction. Recently Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that Fable fans should take confidence from Playground Games’ work on Forza Horizon 5.
“The only thing I can really say about Fable is, seeing the pedigree of the team and Playground, and where they set the bar for themselves in building a game,” Spencer said. “I think that showed with the Forza Horizon 5 preview that they had—I think people should just take confidence in that [studio director] Gavin [Raeburn] and the team there have that same level of focus on doing something amazing with an IP that we know is really important to a lot of Xbox fans, so we can’t wait to get to show more, but the team is just amazing.”
