Microsoft has pushed back the release date of Fable 3 on PC, confirming that it will now no longer launch at the same time as the Xbox 360 version.

Fable 3 was originally set for an October 26th release date on both PC and Xbox 360, but now the PC version will come at a later, unconfirmed date.

"The console and PC versions are now on different schedules as we're focusing on building experiences optimised for each platform. We aren't announcing a ship date for the PC SKU at this time, but expect news soon," read a statement given to IGN.

The release of Fable 3 on PC was originally meant as part of a big push to boost the profile of Windows 7 as a gaming platform.

Lionhead's Fable series has had a rough time of it on PC in the past. The first game on the original Xbox was originally ported with a minimum of new content as part of Fable: The Lost Chapters, but came long after the Xbox debut. Fable 2 has remained as an Xbox 360 exclusive.
