Fable 3: PC Release Date Delayed

We have some bad news for PC gamers looking forward to Fable 3, while the Xbox 360 version of the game will be released on October 26th, the PC version has been delayed and will be released on a yet to be determined date.

The company would not say how long PC gamers will have to wait to get their hands on the game, however we expect to hear something about a release date soon.

This delay is also annoyance to Microsoft as the PC version of Fable 3 was originally meant as part of a big push to boost the profile of Windows 7 as a gaming platform, let’s just hope it is worth the wait.

We will do our very best to update you when we hear of an official PC release date, for more information check out the source link below.

Will you wait for the PC release of Fable 3?

Microsoft's gaming division is managed separately from the software division, and their standards for release products are extremely high. I suspect that, like the previous game, Fable 3 is full of bugs, and Microsoft is holding Lionhead's nuts to the fire with the contract they signed to clean it up for PC release. Hence, the delay, and hopefully a better end-product.

Chances are, they will create DLC or an expansion first and then release the PC version simultaneously like they did with TLC. This will give them more time to tweak the game to make PC controls easier to use, and ensure the graphics are up to standards. Plus, more people will be interested in buying the PC version then, because they will see it as getting the DLC or expansion included free. Also, the Xbox 360 IS essentially a PC in a box, it has RAM, Motherboard, CPU, Video Card and Software like any PC – but the OS is… Read more »

I think the real reason for delaying it is 1 of a few options, 1 Knowing people are waiting for Fable III the PC users will get impatient and buy it for the xbox, so than they make more money due to the fact you have to pay to go online. Or 2 just completely don't care about PC gamers anymore, but considering that their console is terrible, I'd put more money into the PC gamers that make their games stay alive. Plus you can't fit everything on the console versions…. do the game justice and release for PC users… Read more »

The problem is that the common misconception is that the 360 is just a console shoved into a box with a different UI.
It is not.
It is an entirely different machine, which works completely differently. The base code of the game must be rewritten so that it can be played on the PC instead of the 360. I don't know how many people here know about coding, but re-coding an entire game from 360->PC would not be fun, or quick.

Windows xp IS windows 7 and windows vista smashed with windows nt or windows 2000, there is no diffrence besides windows 7 actually creates less svchosts.exe because it puts more programs into one instead of making 50 svchosts.exe to slow down ur stuff… now if u cant run a game in windows 7 that runs on xp better, use the compatability tool and it will run perfect I have the ORIGNAL doom and wolfenstein on my windows 7 ultimate… so enough complaining this isnt about windows its about fable… and probally a politcial argument… as usal cant wait for PC… Read more »

the only an main reason pc is delayed is because ppl will download it and wont be forced to go online in game, hence 360 if u connect xbox live with dloaded game u get that account banned, they wanna get the most pay out then release pc game ten bucks cheaper a couple months down the road because they expect ppl to just say fk it and just go ahead and purchase on 360, simole as that…

about xp VS 7, i was told when i bought my pc, that xp can only use up to 2GB ram and if you have more than that, then its just wasted and not utilized. ergo if you have a really good machine, like i do and can run 7, i think its best to do so, otherwise you have ram that just sitting there doing nothing and you might even be able to run heavier games and the only reason you cant, is because xp is holding you back.

@Daniel wow you couldnt be more wrong, windows 7 is the greatest windows ever created, you are thinking of windows vista that sucks. Windows vista was one of worst windows to come out. Windows 7 run like a dream i have pretty high end gaming computer and i havent had a single issue with windows 7 yet.

I heard from hear-say that Lion Head delayed the game for PC to make it "feel" more like a PC game. And not just a console game painted over to look like a PC game. What ever that means? My friend is play Fable 3 right now behind me on the Xbox 360 and the graphics look descent. But if Lion Head is delaying it to make the game run/look better for PC or to keep it up to par with high end gaming PC rigs then so be it (or what you should expect a PC game to look… Read more »

first robs right. second. wtf. someone put up something about the delay like "hey its being delayed further TBA due to blah blah…" or "ya amazon says its november 10th" ect. something new. not regurgitated (sorry for bad spelling) bs from a bunch of bums talking about which microsoft OS is superior to which. its not what this is about and does it really matter if someone who thinks different than you plays the game on an os that will be – in your perspective -wrose? no, thats exactly what you want. hopefully the next person to add something will… Read more »

just cause the company had plans to release it for windows 7 doesnt mean the game wont work on xp, i have both xp and 7 on different machines so either way once its released i'll play it one way or another, i find both os excellant only problem i have with upgrades is the games i die hard love and have played for years and wish to still play become harder to do as the systems advance. as an example a game that was produced during the win 95/98 era works great on my xp system but i can… Read more »

And to those who are whining about how windows xp is the best and how they are never going to change need to open their eyes. From time to time windows comes out with a new operating system just as xbox or playstation come out with a new console. I hear people complain all the time about how the new operating sytems are so expensive but they dont complain when they spend upwards of $400 on a new gaming console? It doesnt make sense. Perhaps vista was a mistake and it sounds like it was but I dont know for… Read more »

Im glad to be seeing a shift of popular console games being released on PC, but its becoming a slower and more painful process than I hoped it to be. A console is nothing other than a computer with its own operating system if you ask me. For example, The consoles are popular because everyone that has an Xbox 360 has the same hardware so game designers know thier boundries. This is good because all the latest games are compatible with the system everyone has but at the same time there is little room for growth of more "high-tech" games.… Read more »

I'm so sick of companies delaying games. And this one is the worst because as of just a few days ago it was announced as released next week. How do you make this announcement just a few days before you it was supposedly going to be release. Sooooooo ridiculous!!!!!

James

If you dont you dont want to get rid of xp or you are uncertain of 7 then just dual boot its what i do. some games run better on xp and others run better on 7. Personally i didnt want to change from xp to 7 but eventually decided to try a dual boot a few months back and to be honest its really good definately a step up from vista and in my opinion on par with the usablity adn ease and stability of XP but just ahs more tweaks and options.

I have windows 7, works great. I was looking forward to playing Fable III on the first, then a couple months later I would borrow the xbox game to compare. Now I will have to buy both of them, cuz im NOT WAITING for my brother to finish playing on xbox or for the PC version to come out!

Ughh I hate having to wait for PC release dates…not very impressed with the delay. However I’ll more than likley pick up a copy for both xbox and PC to see the difference in gameplay and graphics quality.

Damn its to bad some people have their heads up their asses about windows 7. I spent under $600 upgrading, and I have never been happier. windows 7 runs like a dream on a system built for it. I tried going back to xp, and missed the tweaks of windows 7. even now I have a dual boot setup, and have not launched xp in weeks. if you think windows 7 sucks, your system, or possibly you technical compitance just suck. Can’t wait to play fable 3, and I will probably get it for console and pc, just so when… Read more »

I got windows xp and fuck i dont wanna install windows 7, IT SUX. besides its probably delayed cause it troubleshoots with windows 7 CUS IT SUX. (Ty Atrix). lets hope they get some common sense and get an exp version 2. (like b4 they had games for windows platinum 1995 and xp) when xp was new. Ohai perfect solution right? lets make solo windows 7 games. wow. what a move microsoft srsly. ok i got the solution i'll just dual operation system on my pc. and ILLIGALLY download windows 7. how do you like that huh? i think i… Read more »

I'll bet you 20$ that's what delayed it.
