Fans think that Microsoft and Xbox are teasing some Fable news at its upcoming Xbox Games showcase next month.
On Xbox’s official Twitter account, a video was posted showing a person’s Xbox controller covered in glitter. Then it's revealed that the glitter forms a trail that leads to a screen that shows the Xbox Games Showcase logo with the caption, “seems important.”

In the Fable games, a glitter trail guided players to their next destination on a mission. So this trail of glitter implies that the Fable reboot will appear at the Xbox Games Showcase. The game is being developed by Forza Horizon developer Playground Games.
The Fable reboot was first announced back in 2020 for Xbox Series X and PC. In the meantime, we’ve learned that the game is being developed using the Forza engine and that Horizon Forbidden West writer Andrew Walsh left Guerrilla Games to join Playground and work on it.
This is the latest mainline entry in the Fable series since 2010’s Fable 3. The Xbox Games Showcase is set to premiere on June 11.
