A bit of news you might have missed in the wake of the Microsoft Keynote (what with the buzz over the Game Room and all) is a press release announcing a rough Fable III release date.
The press release, "Delivering Entertainment Across New Screens, Scenes and Interfaces," mentions toward the bottom the 2010 lineup for Xbox gaming and Project Natal -- Halo: Reach, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, Crackdown 2, Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, and Fable 3.
Further nailing down the date, Lionhead Studios' Facebook page was updated this morning with confirmation of Holiday 2010 as the release time frame. Lionhead Community Manager, Sam van Tilburgh, also tweeted last night that the press can expect to get its first look at Fable III in San Francisco, CA next month. Stay tuned.
