Neither game has a confirmed release date.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has recently shed some light on The Elder Scrolls 6, claiming that it is “further out” in terms of a release date compared to the upcoming Xbox Fable title.
Appearing on IGN’s Unlocked Podcast in celebration of the last 20 years of Xbox, Phil Spencer gave a brief insight into where The Elder Scrolls 6 fits in terms of Xbox’s upcoming release timeline.
On the podcast, when asked if he thinks Obsidian’s upcoming fantasy RPG Avowed would be Xbox fans’ next fantasy adventure before The Elder Scrolls 6, Spencer stated: “When I think about our line-up, and I think about that more core fantasy, RPG setting, I think Avowed is gonna be an awesome entrance there.”
He continues by addressing Fable, saying: “You know Fable’s never been that, Fable’s always been a little more light-hearted, and a little more British, and I think Playground (Games – Fable’s current developer) will keep it there, and Elder Scrolls 6 is further out, and when that comes out I think it’ll be incredible.”
Both of these fantasy titles currently don’t have a release date, with Fable – also referred to as Fable 4 – being announced during Xbox’s 2020 Showcase along with a short teaser trailer and The Elder Scrolls 6 being unveiled to the world during E3 2018. We have seen very little for both of these titles.
In the same interview, Phil Spencer also commented on the number of RPGs currently in development with Xbox, noting that: “I think it’s important for us to have great games to fill up the portfolio of things that people get to play on Xbox.”
Recalling Xbox and Bethesda’s E3 2021 showcase, he adds: “There was a moment at the end of the showcase, where I just started listing some of the games we have in development in different genres and when I was going through the RPG list specifically, even I was surprised, I kept writing down thinking ‘this list has gotta end at some point.'”
Of course, Xbox recently purchased Bethesda, and it seems Spencer’s words that Xbox is becoming an RPG (and FPS) powerhouse are really coming to fruition. Xbox fans also have the upcoming Starfield and Redfall to look forward to, both of which were announced at E3 2021.
