The planned open beta for Fable Legends has been pushed back to spring of 2016.
Lionhead has explained the reason for the delay in an official blog post. The team states that they are extending the closed beta period to “add features and polish.” There will also be an additional 100,000 players added to the closed beta over the next weeks. Those who have been on the waiting list the longest will have top priority.
“To be honest, we didn’t anticipate just how big Fable Legends is becoming. It’s simply the most ambitious game we’ve ever created at Lionhead and it’s taking more time than we thought” the note said. “To achieve our aspirations for Fable Legends, we’ve moved our open beta release to spring of 2016. So to all of you who have been playing in our closed beta, and to all of you who have been waiting patiently for the game to release into open beta, we want to thank you on behalf of everyone at Lionhead.”
The closed beta has been running since mid-October. If you were not lucky enough to get into the closed beta, then be prepared to wait a few more months. Lionhead says Fable Legends will be free to play when the full game launches.
