Those (un)lucky enough to have been previously selected for the Fable Legends closed beta have received a short email from Lionhead Studios after yesterday’s announcement that development on the game has been halted, and the future of Lionhead hangs in the balance.
The decision has been made to stop development on Fable Legends, and the service will cease to be available after 15:00 GMT on Wednesday 13 April 2016. Players who already have access to the closed beta will be able to continue playing the game until this time. Gold purchases from the in-game bank will be disabled with immediate effect.
We will be providing all players who purchased gold a full refund. Players who are eligible for a refund will be provided further information by email within the next 7 days.
We want to thank all the players who participated in the closed beta and who helped with the development of Fable Legends.
So there you have it, you’ll still be able to play Fable Legends for about another month, and if you were one of those that spent money on gold purchases from the in-game bank you will get a full refund from Lionhead.
