PC gamers who were expecting to play Fable III alongside their Xbox 360 counterparts got some bad news today. IGN reports that the PC port of Lionhead's upcoming fantasy RPG will not be released on October 26 at the same time as the Xbox 360 version.
According to a press spokesperson from the game's publisher Microsoft, "The console and PC versions are now on different schedules as we're focusing on building experiences optimized for each platform. We aren't announcing a ship date for the PC sku at this time, but expect news soon." As we have mentioned before, the release of Fable III for the PC will be Microsoft's first published PC game since the release of the PC port of Gears of War way back in December 2007.
