According to a listing on the Amazon UK
product page for Fable 2
, the anticipated sequel to Peter Molyneux's original Xbox-exclusive role-playing game, a date has been set for a spring release. The listing shows Fable 2
will hit store shelves on May 30.
Take this with a giant retailer wants preorders
grain of salt, but it could make sense. If Gears of War 2
was to hit in fall of 2008 (Read: naw son!) then Fable 2
could be the game that leads into the fourth quarter push much like Crackdown
did in 2007. However, Fable 2
is a big franchise
for Microsoft and would most likely ship during the busy holiday season. Also, retailers are sort of keen on picking release dates out of hats.
