Microsoft prepping Fable: The Journey?

E3 2011: Internet sleuth spots range of new Microsoft domain registrations, including one for new Lionhead game; Dance Central 2, Kinect Sports 2, and Kinect Fun Labs also outed.


LOS ANGELES--The 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo kicks off tomorrow, but it appears one of the big three's announcements has been unveiled ahead of schedule.

Internet super-sleuth Superannuation has spotted a list of new Microsoft-related domain registrations for a range of properties, one of which is for something called Fable: The Journey, rumored to be a Kinect title.

No further information is available about Fable: The Journey. However, Lionhead's top man, Peter Molyneux, has not shied away from displaying the studio's motion control ambition through the Kinect-enabled Project Milo.

Another high-profile domain name registered is one for Dance Central 2, the rumored successor to the Kinect hit Dance Central. The original Dance Central sold more than 1 million units and enjoyed strong critical praise. Further, series developer Harmonix has confirmed that it will debut a new game at next week's show.

Also included in the domain name registration spree was Kinect Sports Season 2. Like Dance Central, Kinect Sports was a launch title for Kinect and has sold more than 1 million units to date, making a sequel likely.

Lastly, a new domain was recently registered for something called Kinect Fun Labs. Whatever the case, Microsoft has promised that the Kinect library will triple in 2011, and bringing the above-mentioned titles to market this year would certainly help that process.

Eager gamers won't need to wait long to have answers, as Microsoft's 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing is scheduled for 9 a.m. PDT on Monday, June 6.
