It may well end up that it is Fable, but there actually hasnt been any leaks or anyhting, its just pure speculation in the fact that Playground announced they were making an RPG, and they are British, and everone put 2 and 2 together.
Like i said, Obsidian are RPG guys, nad some of their RPG's are similar in style to Fable. For me it would make more sense to get Obsidian to do it.
I feel like it was more than that. There were some insider rumors. Not that that makes it true, but I feel like that's were it all spawned from.

It definitely is inspired from Fable, but it is not Fable(more of a spritual successor).
Interesting. Well, I'm intrigued either way.

It's not easy to pull 150 devs out of thin air. What you might get is a desperately cobbled together team , or it might be awesome XD who knows? ^^

Even so, they've been hiring loads of people for the better part of a year.

Agree. Also speaks to how the studios are shaping up.

Playground, 343, Coalition. Then you also have Ninja Theory, Obsidian, Turn 10, and (eventually) The Initiative.
Also, InXile is growing by hiring ex-Interplay devs

Undead Labs grew from under 40 to almost 100 by hiring a lot of ex-ArenaNet devs



Rare is also in a hiring spree for a new project for a while and have several open positions.
