Fable 4 missing from Xbox E3 2019 as Project Scarlett steals the show

It was a long Xbox E3 Showcase, filled with exciting games, updates and next-gen news.

But it didn’t reveal anything about Fable 4, a title that has been leaked and revealed to be in production for the Xbox platform.

Many Microsoft fans were expecting to see more about Fable 4 today, during the big Xbox event being held in LA.

A full 90 minutes of news seemed to suggest that Xbox had plenty of room for it, even if it might be a next-gen project.

But while fans were glad to see more on the next Halo Infinite game arriving with Project Scarlett next year, there was nothing new on Fable 4.

Fans are always hungry for news and missing out on one or two announcements isn’t a new thing. The main announcement was that Project Scarlett would be launched during holiday 2020.

But its absence from this year’s show suggests that Fable 4 could be a new Project Scarlett game.

This doesn’t mean it won’t be accessible to those who don’t buy the new console, as it will also be playable through Project xCloud.

The streaming service is going into preview in October 2019, although this will only be for current-gen games for now.

And here’s more about the new Xbox console that could be running Fable 4 in the future, with Microsoft revealing: “During its briefing, Xbox demonstrated its commitment to console gaming as a critical choice for players who want a device designed, built and optimized for gaming.

“Project Scarlett will set a new bar for console power, speed and performance, arriving Holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite.

“Powered by a custom-designed processor, leveraging the latest Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Project Scarlett will deliver a new level of immersion.

“Paired with high bandwidth GDDR6 memory, and a next-generation solid state drive (SSD), Project Scarlett will provide developers the power they require to bring their creative visions to life. Featuring hardware accelerated raytracing, variable refresh rate, 8K capability and ultra-low latency input, Project Scarlett will deliver a new level of fidelity, precision and accuracy never before seen in console gaming.

“With Project Scarlett, we continue our commitment to compatibility by ensuring your gaming accessories and Xbox career will also move forward with you, along with thousands of games across four console generations which will look and play best on Project Scarlett.”
