Fable Legends Not Coming To Steam, Will Be Windows 10 Exclusive
It looks like Steam's newest competitor isn't Origin or GoG, but Microsoft itself.
In response to a curious fan, Lionhead Studios' social media coordinator said that Fable Legends "will be on Windows 10 but not Steam":
@sertificationNu I think you may have answered your own question there ;) It will be on Windows 10 but not Steam, sorry!

It's a curious move, to say the least, considering Steam's gigantic foothold on the PC gaming turf, and a sign that Microsoft might be looking to move in on that turf with Windows 10. Several other notable games, such as the free-to-play Gigantic, are also sold in the Windows 10, and Gigantic won't be playable on previous versions of Windows, though I'm not sure that there's any exclusivity for those games in terms of where they can be sold. At least, not that we know of at this time.
Picking up a few decent-sized, but not gargantuan, properties will make a few headlines, but could it be the precursor to bigger exclusives? The next Elder Scrolls or Civilization game, perhaps?
In any case, if you were hoping to play Fable Legends through Steam -- and maybe holding off or even not upgrading at all to Windows 10 -- how does this make you feel?

Window 10 still have a lot of issues, especially the part some players talked about with existing games.
This is because not all Developers are constantly working to update their games for all Operating Systems.
And you "CAN" run the games, but the games will at times have glitches, check different game's support forums, you'll find them.
It's the reason why there's still a lot of people using Window 7 regardless if Window 10 runs "supported games" better or not.
First off windows 10 exclusive well wow.. how about microsoft just fix the shit they made before they release a new windows and tbh no one wants to change OS every 2 years... no one..
The Fable story dont deserve to be treated like this and sadly with this title the fable story will end and never come back again.. why?? because they crossed the line in making a moba of a game and think that the hype of fable fans will get it just because.. well .... you.
Im happy this shit dont end up on steam good riddance.. hope you bastards realize what you have done..
first off, Microsoft owns the rights to Fable in regards to where this can played on. Microsoft has a say on where this be purchased on i.e. downloadable or retail. Microsoft does not have the right on modifying any software of fable., Big Blue Box Studios Limited does and its related partners.
+ I didnt even hear about that game so ye, gtfo ms.
Win10 is a friggin botnet.
Also, I really really hope people who complain about Win10 actually tried it and not just talk out of their butts. The only thing I can see bad in Win10 is probably the lack of drivers on older systems. But then again, if you have an old system you probably won't miss out on anything, since you wouldn't be able to run it anyway and can just stick to Win7.
I personally haven't had any issues with gaming on Windows 10 - in theory everything that runs on 7 will run on 10. AFAIK there are some driver issues but that is to be expected with a new OS.
