The one thing Peter Molyneux can’t be accused of is being too soft on his past accomplishments. In this case, he’s come clean on his opinion of Fable III. Speaking to Develop, Peter Molyneux admitted that Fable III’s final form was less than what he’d hoped.
“I think Fable III was a trainwreck. It was built to be much bigger than what it was constrained to be and eventually ended up as. If I had my time again, I’d take the advances we made from Fable 1 to Fable II, I’d make the same advances from Fable II to Fable III and spend another entire year working on Fable III. But would it be that perfect gem that’s in my mind? No.”
I don’t know if I’d say it was a trainwreck, but I’ll agree that Fable III was no Fable II.
