Control Senior Writer Joining Fable 4 Team as Lead Writer
Playground Games has found a lead writer for Fable 4 in Anna Megill
Signs so far for the upcoming Fable title from Playground Games are looking good. The Fable 4 team has recently acquired a talented lead writer in the form of Anna Megill, who held a prominent role in the development of Control.
While you may not recognize her name, you’re sure to recognize her work. Megill has been in game development for a whopping 16 years, working on games for ArenaNet, Arkane Studios, Nintendo, and Square Enix. However, her most recent work may e her most notable. Megill was a senior writer and narrative lead at Remedy Entertainment while the studio worked on Control.
Megill is leaving a position at The Division developer Massive Entertainment to join UK-based Playground Games. The team she is joining is already packed with talent from other renowned development studios. Playground Games has game dev veterans from Rocksteady, Rockstar, Ninja Theory and Gearbox Software on its team.
But even so, I wasn’t sure this new Fable was right for me. I was like “Is this going to be just a bunch of medieval fart jokes?” But the team’s story vision reassured and excited me. It’s a PERFECT fit. I can’t wait to get started ✨

Microsoft revealed that it was producing another entry in the long-running Fable series at an Xbox games showcase this past July. No other details on the game, such as a release date or even what form it will take have been revealed.
On Twitter, Megill expressed her excitement for this position. “Fable holds a special place in my heart,” wrote Megill. “It came out the year I started in gamedev, and it’s the first game I played with a developer’s eye.” I am personally beyond excited to see what the writer on a twisted and strange game like Control can bring to the world of Fable 4.
