Possible Fable and Perfect Dark Placeholder Twitter Accounts Have Been Found [Update]

With Microsft set to show off some first-party title next month, these could possibly be placeholders for an unannounced Fable and Perfect Dark Game.

Fable and Perfect Dark fans could possibly be lining up to get some great news sometime soon if these place holder accounts have some truth behind them.

Tom Warren of The Verge posted that there have been two possible Twitter placeholder accounts created for both Fable and Perfect Dark. On top of that, he pointed out that a Microsoft Xbox employee is following one of the accounts while the other is registered to a Microsoft email address.

Adding onto the conversation, someone in the comments mentioned that both of the accounts actually are registered to what seem to be Microsft email addresses. Cleverly, they tried to reset the password to the accounts which in turn showed part of the emails the accounts were registered too.

This is a pretty interesting rumor/leak/whatever you would like to call it. I do not think that I have ever seen this one before. I am usually used to Walmart Canada leaking it or the game leaking on Amazon. A temporary placeholder twitter account that is followed by an Xbox employee and also possibly ran by Microsoft employees is a new one to me. Please let me know if this has happened before though.

Obviously, nothing has been confirmed so far and this could all just be speculation or someone trying to create a fake leak. So, make sure to take all of this with a major grain of salt. If it is fake though, I have to give them some major props because this is definitely an interesting one.

[UPDATE]
Aaron Greenberg has commented and stated that these accounts were created years ago and its standard practice to secure social handles for all of their IP. It was fun while it lasted.
