Fable Fortune early access release delayed on Xbox One and PC

The release of Fable Fortune, the upcoming collectible card game set within Microsoft's Fable universe, has been delayed across all platforms. While the game was previously scheduled to debut next week on Xbox Game Preview and Steam Early Access, Fable Fortune will now be available on all platforms on July 25.

As detailed in a post on the official Fable Fortune blog, the title's delayed rollout was caused by an administration error affecting the Xbox One version. To maintain a simultaneous release across all platforms, all versions are being pushed later into the month.

Due to an unexpected administration hiccup we are unfortunately unable to launch the Xbox One version of Fable Fortune next week and we've made the decision to move the launch date back to July 25th on all platforms.

Fable Fortune was first unveiled last year, following the closure of Lionhead Studios – the creators of the Fable franchise. Now under the wing of a newly-formed independent studio, the collectible card game inherits various traits from the renowned RPG series.

Although the game is set to officially release later this year, this month's launch allows the public to get hands-on with an in-progress version for all platforms. For those invested in Microsoft's ecosystem, Fable Fortune will also support Play Anywhere – a program that enables cross-platform saves and purchases between Xbox One and Windows 10.
