Fable Legends’ beta shut down today, and its developer, Lionhead Studios, offered thanks to its fans, as well as details about refunds related to the game.
If you spent money on the game, you may already see a refund in your account. If you’re not seeing one yet, Lionhead says to be patient and check you Xbox Live messages. On the blog announcing the game’s official closure, Lionhead also offered thanks to its fans, which you can see below.
All of us here at Lionhead Studios would like to thank you for participating in the closed beta and being a part of the game’s development. All stories have to end eventually, but the memories of Heroic triumphs and Villainous plots will last forever. Thank you for your support – you are all Legends!
The details of Lionheads’ likely closure are still being worked out, and some rumors are pointing to development continuing for Fable Legends outside of Microsoft. The studio is currently in “consultation” and we will know more about the studios’ future once that period draws to a close.
Despite my reservations about Fable Legends (I was never particularly on board with the idea of an online multiplayer-focused Fable) it’s still disappointing to hear about the possible closure of the studio and the cancellation of a game that has been in development for such a long period of time. Hopefully the rumors of the game’s continued development are more than just rumors.
