Fable set to go online?

Molyneux teases over MMO

Fable could be set to become an MMO title, if Peter Molyneux's latest hints about a prospective online future are to be taken on face value.

"Whatever happens in the future of Fable, I don't want you to think you know exactly what features are going to be in there," the veteran designer told Eurogamer, speaking at GDC last week.

"Don't think about this as an RPG franchise - think about it as the world of Albion.

"There's a niche for Fable as there's humour in there and there's a Britishness and I think we'll keep that side of it. But whether it's more action or RPG or MMO or some new genre - that's what we have to do."

Fable Online would make sense in many ways - Microsoft having in the past spoken of their desire to get MMOs on the Xbox 360. We've also heard whisperings that the platform holder have finalised their MMO business model, too.
