It looks like Fable Legends may not come to Steam

Fable Legends is on the way at some point this year as a free to play action co-op game. Up to this point, we have known that Microsoft is marketing this as a ‘Windows 10' game, though we did not know how the company intended to keep it exclusive to the operating system. Now we do, as Fable Legends will be released exclusively on the Windows Store.

The timing of this reveal is a little weird as just a couple of weeks ago, Microsoft stated that it planned to support Steam this time around, rather than attempting to take it on again as it did with Games for Windows Live. This also raises questions for any other future Windows 10 games, like Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, which is heading to the PC at some point.

Confirmation of Fable Legend's Windows Store exclusivity came from Lionhead's social media coordinator on Twitter while responding to a fan question. So is Microsoft going to be moving more of its exclusive titles to the Windows Store? The company certainly has some explaining to do, particularly after exclaiming its support for Steam a few weeks ago.

KitGuru Says: We have so many third-party game launchers at this point that having to download Fable Legends through the Windows Store doesn't really bother me. On top of that, plenty of gamers are more wary of Valve's monopoly on PC gaming these days so it will be interesting to see how people react.

  1. For god’s sake Microsoft, stop trying to make Games For Windows happen! You are really, really bad at it and are hurting your game sales immensely. I wouldn’t mind playing this but I am not going to go through your awful little store to do it.

    Learn from your mistakes and move on.

  2. If it is a universal app purchase, meaning I am getting both Win10 and XBOne versions for the same price, I am totally up for it

  4. Without steam this PC game would fail so hard. Microsoft has consistently lied over it’s support for PC gaming, so I can’t see that changing any time soon.

  5. This is no more trying to make Game for Windows happen than Microsoft Solitaire Collection being a Windows Store app is.

  6. I agree… Microsoft Solitaire Collection is also a veiled attempt to reboot Microsoft’s PC gaming dominance dreams.
