Lionhead Studios, the development squad responsible for the Fable franchise is led by a man named Peter Molyneux. This guy loves hyping his games and sometimes he can take it too far.
Today it looks like we’re getting another slice of hype cake, as the Molyneux, in an interview with Gamereactor, was quoted saying “There’s some very, very big things happening in Fable. Bigger than you think, and it’s going to really upset people.” Molyneux then added he is “really scared” about telling people the news and said “they’re going to get super pissed off, they really are.”
Getting people angered with a title before it releases sounds kind of backwards. But, it’s Peter Molyneux we’re talking about here, so really, anything goes.
What kind of huge news could get fans angry? Reporting site Joystiq says the events of Fable II were possibly one long dream sequence. What do you think?
We’ll have an answer for you at the end of the week when the X10 gaming shindig happens.
