Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham writers have carried out admirable function with the franchise, but it appears they are now off to do other stuff. Fable stuff, in certain, as lots of of them have joined Playground Games, developers of Forza.
It really is not news that Playground is gearing up to (allegedly) generate a reboot of Microsoft’s Fable franchise, but the truth that they’ve enlisted Batman writers to create the script is new.
At the time of writing, Playground has enlisted 3 of the 4 Arkham writers:
- Senior Scriptwriter Kim MacAskill, joined in August 2019
- Principal Scriptwriter Martin Lancaster, initially Lead Scriptwriter on Arkham Knight
- Writer of Du Lac & Fey: Dance of Death, Rebecca Haigh, joined in August 2019
The only remaining Rocksteady Arkham writer who did not join Playground is Phillip Huxley, who has gone off to function on the Have to have for Speed Franchise with EA’s Ghost Games. Due to the fact we know valuable small about the Fable game in query, there is no point in guessing what we’re in for. The truth that Playground is enlisting severe talent, on the other hand, does make for an fascinating note.
