"forget about the word 'trilogy'" as it doesn't apply to the Fable series and its troubled world of Albion.
The veteran designer says he hates "limiting ourselves" with a trilogy, and teases Fable III's conclusion won't feel like a close to the hero franchise.
"Forget about the word 'trilogy'," declared Molyneux. Already the Lionhead boss has said he'd love to explore Fable into high numbers before possibly retiring the series. There are so many more dog breeds to code after all, and cheeky British gags to plug.
"I hate limiting ourselves to a trilogy. I want you to feel that you're on a journey in Fable and I'm not going to tell you what happens at the end of Fable III but I don't think you'll feel in any way that you've reached the end of a trilogy," continued Molyneux.
Fable III has two halves with the first having us whip up followers and fermenting rebellion against our tyrant King brother, and the second plonks our rear on the throne with an entire kingdom to rule over and decree edicts with major consequences.
Fable III releases on Xbox 360 October 29th in Europe, and on PC in 2011.
