  1. Hi,

    How do I contact MS Studios?
    I tried to email multiple time via but never received answer.

    I was just asking why you can’t release Fable Legends codes to fans?
    We are a lot of people who want to get Fable Legends, but since nobody can continue working on it, we can’t only hope. If only a group of fans could work for free or start a kickstarter to finish the game, we could play something great.

    1. Hi,

      Now you cancelled Scalebound? Are you serious…
      After you are saying you have other good games coming. I think you don’t understand the potential of the games you are cancelling. Fable Legends, Project Knoxville and Scalebound could have been the greatest game of all time.

      How much time did I ask by email to get assets and code of Fable Legends to continue development as independant with lot of fans.

      You care too much about money? You are loosing more money by cancelling games.
