The departure of Peter Molyneux from Lionhead Studios has not impacted the flow of Fable products. Fable: The Journey and Fable: Heroes will release later this year supported by two new novels and three digital shorts, Lionhead Studios and Random House announced today.
The first novel, Fable: At the Edge of the World, is due out this August. Written by Christie Golden (World of Warcraft: The Shattering, StarCraft: Firstborn), the book will bridge the events of Fable III and Fable: The Journey.
Outside of acknowledging the existence of a second new Fable novel, Random House did not share further information about it.
Additionally, three Fable digital shorts are planned for release beginning this May. Written by Peter David (Fable: The Balverine Order), the shorts will focus on "key" characters from the Fable franchise, and will be available on e-readers.
Digital shorts Fable: Reaver and Fable: Jack of Blades will arrive in May, with Fable: Theresa launching a month later. Further details will be revealed at a later date, according to Random House.
On top of the new novels and digital shorts, a Fable: The Journey Prima strategy guide and a Fable world bible are in the woks. The world bible will include content from all previously released Fable games.
