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?
