Fable Twitter Account Created As “Standard Practice,” Says Xbox

Fable 4 Studio Begins Hiring For "AAA Open World Action RPG"

As critically-acclaimed as the Fable franchise was, it’s no wonder the community is constantly on the edge of their seats. From hints, rumors, and teasers within the last few years, it’s hard not to get ones hopes up when news of recently minted Twitter accounts were found. Initially, sources found that two Twitter accounts were created this year for the Fable series and Perfect Dark and suffice to say, people were wide-eyed with curiosity. According to Xbox, however, it was just “standard practice.”

Discovered earlier this week then reported by The Verge’s Tom Warren, two separate Twitter handles joined in March and June of this year for Fable and Perfect Dark respectively. According to a response on Twitter, both are being held by a Microsoft account as well, solidifying Microsoft’s involvement as official.

Amidst all the clamor on social media about the potential of a new game for Fable or Perfect Dark, Xbox Games Marketing manager, Aaron Greenberg, responded on Twitter to douse the fire before it got too high. According to Greenberg, the accounts have been inactive for some time now.

With that said, fans aren’t quick to believe what Greenberg had to say. Here are a few noteworthy reactions that might got some wheels turning or for some hearty chuckles:

Interesting turn of events here! What do you think about Greenberg’s public response to the whispers around Fable and Perfect Dark?
