This year’s Fable may also be in development for the PC, Peter Molyneux leads us to believe; During his Fable III panel at GDC this week, the Lionhead boss suddenly turned cagey when asked if the action-adventure-focused RPG would see release on the PC.
Not to anger Microsoft’s “PR police people … with sniper rifles,” he chose his words carefully. “I can say, mystically, that I love the PC. I love what’s happening to the PC, and I would love to see the Fable franchise on the PC.”
He also left a rather heavy hint of a non-Xbox 360 release in a recent interview with GameSpot, “We still haven’t really talked about, ‘[Are] there any other platforms for Fable which we should be talking about now?’”
A job listing for a now-filled position at Lionhead also suggests a PC release, and more. “The role involves converting and maintaining the network code of the Xbox 360 version of Fable III to the PC, and enabling the Xbox 360 version and the PC version to play together,” read the ad for a network programmer.
All in all, it’s rumor and speculation for now. But should a PC release happen, as Molyneux said at his Fable panel, he’d want to make sure it’s “a truly amazing experience on the PC and that, you know, it’s brilliant.”
