fairy tale 4 is another major entry in the beloved RPG series. It was announced a few years ago with a theatrical trailer, and for now it’s just called Fairy tale. There hasn’t really been any development updates since the announcement. For now, we’re waiting for basic details like gameplay and release date.
Playground Games, the team behind the Forza Horizon series, is working on the next entry in the beloved fantasy franchise. Although it may seem strange at first glance, Playground Games is a great studio with a real knack for creating realistic and dynamic environments. This is definitely something the Fable series could greatly benefit from.

Fable 4 trailer
Only one at the moment Fairy tale teaser released: trailer announcing the world premiere.
The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but it does suggest that the game could have been set long before the later installments of the series as we don’t have as much of a Victorian industrial revolution feel as we do with fairy tale 3setting. Instead, it seems fairy tale 4 will have a medieval fantasy setting, perhaps more similar to the original game, with a trailer showing a sword, fairies, overgrown toadstools, and greedy toads.

News from a fairy tale 4
The head of Xbox explains the lack of news
Development is still in progress fairy tale 4 but after the game didn’t show up at Xbox’s showcase at both Summer Game Fest and Gamescom 2022, fans were left wondering when they’d hear more.
The head of Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty, admitted to the lack of news during an interview at PAX West 2022 (opens in a new tab) but clarified that the game would only be shown if developer Playground Games was ready to show it.
“Every time I see something I say ‘We should show this’ … because there’s a lot of cool stuff out there,” said Booty. “The team made it clear to me that I wouldn’t be able to show anything until it was ready.”
Booty then expressed support for Playground Games, saying that he was choosing a studio mostly known for Forza Horizon to work with fairy tale 4 he may seem “a bit of a head scratcher”, “they’re getting it” and he’s “excited when it’s time to be able to show more”.
