Fable III will begin Microsoft PC push

Microsoft to focus more on the PC as a gaming platform

Fable III's launch on the PC will mark the beginning of a wider strategy which will see Microsoft pushing a lot more first-party PC titles according to leaked documents.

Microsoft internal documents have supposedly found their way into Kotaku's hands that show that the company wishes to be more proactive in the PC games market.

The document said: "In terms of revenue, Windows is far and away the largest gaming platform in the world, so it's an incredibly important part of Microsoft's business. From core games like Fable III to casual, social and Facebook titles, more gaming happens on Windows than anywhere else. Windows 7 is a world-class gaming platform, and you can bet Microsoft has a vested interest in using it as a platform for amazing first party content. Fable III on Windows as well as Xbox 360 this holiday is a great first step, and we'll have more news for you later this summer."

If true this strategy will begin of October 26th when Fable II launches.
