After a successful PC port of the original Xbox RPG Fable, many were surprised that Lionhead Studios decided to skip a PC release for the Xbox 360 sequel Fable II. I don’t think PC gamers missed out on much, but hey, many people thought it was a game of the year contender at the time.

Well, Lionhead and Microsoft either listened to the outcry over the lack of a PC Fable II or the Xbox 360 version alone didn’t make enough money as an exclusive, because it has now been confirmed that Fable III, first announced as an Xbox 360 exclusive, will also be released on PC this holiday season.

Additionally, a Limited Collector’s Edition SKU has been announced exclusively for the Xbox 360 version. The LCE pack will retail for $79.99/£59.99/€84.99 and include the following:
