Well, it seems a little rumor has been started by a German site of all places.
Worthplaying reports a German game site called Gamona has broken some news that Fable 2 could come as early as Feb of 09.
We can of course take this with a grain of salt, as they note "reliable sources". We know how those work. I think they belong to the ASS-U-ME group of reporters.
But, with the DLC coming, and having a revamp of the Xbox Live for Windows system making a comeback, this could be likely.
I would love this game in hi-def on my monitor.
Anyways, just a bit of news to start the day all bright.
