Sea Of Thieves And Artist Everwild Jump To Fable Developer Playground Games
One of the most anticipated (and possibly secret) Xbox releases is next Fable Game. All we really know at the moment is that it has been in development for at least four years now.
While it looks like the project is well underway, the recruiting drive continues – with Playground Games seemingly kicking off the new year by hiring Toby Hynes as the game’s lead artist.
Interestingly, he came across Rare (another UK-based Xbox studio) – where he was the lead character artist for sea of thieves and Rare’s next project always wild. This might not necessarily be good news for Everwild in particular, which would be “a real mess.”
According to his LinkedIn, before joining the Xbox team – Hynes worked as a lead character artist at PlayStation’s London Studio, Codemasters, and had an artist career that dates back to Games Workshop (the creator of the tabletop RPG war hammer) in 1996. He definitely seems like a fitting hire for Playground’s Fable project.
