Lionhead: Fable III PC version not dead, details coming “when we’re ready”

Release news “soon,” huh, Lionhead?

It’s been three months.

“Fable 3 PC Version is still in development here at Lionhead so PC GAMERS don’t panic. We’ll announce details when we’re ready to do so,” the developer tweeted, putting fears that the port had been canned to rest once and for all.

Unfortunately, this hardly seems like a light at the end of the tunnel. As for why Lionhead decided to about-face and stretch the definition of “soon” far beyond its breaking point, well, it looks like we have a mystery on our hands, gang.

Our guess? Old man Jenkins was in a fish monster costume the entire time. He wanted to frighten away tourists so the cursed mummy’s fortune of gold and weapons grade plutonium would be his for the taking. Bam. Solved. If you need us, we’ll be in the smoke-filled back of a van performing a series of wholesome, family friendly activities.

    It’s better be fucking good, because i read the reviews and the game is a mediocre pile of donkey…

    Casual RPG game. *sniff* where is my Ultima and Wizardry game on the PC =(

    PS: Oh and thanks Microsoft, so much carrying for the PC market. Almost like Ubisoft. It’s better have better graphics, decent optimization and something different from the console games.

    Seems obvious to me they’d want Fable 3 on 360 on at first until early next year to maximize 360 appeal over the holidays.

    The lag might be due to porting, etc. as well but I suspect it has a lot to do with MS first priority being 360/Kinect for December 2010.

    More like old man Microsoft gave them a bunch of cash to keep it exclusive to the xbox so they can keep collecting that sweet, sweet licensing money.
