Specifically their responsibilities were to provide cross-platform gameplay for Xbox 360 and PC Fable III. The listing has since been pulled.
Job ads, online CVs - essential for any industry to thrive but also the bane for videogame publisher PR departments. It would appear that the latest Fable instalment from Lionhead Studios will indeed be coming to PC eventually.
Peter Molyneux was recently coy on the subject of platforms, not ruling out a return to PC for the action/RPG franchise. "Take an existing console codebase and make it run well on a PC," was bulleted as a primary duty for the role.
"Help architect and design any PC-specific features," was another with ensuring "the PC and the Xbox 360 builds can interoperate" as the last. The job ad has since been altered, but not before a screenshot was fired off (thanks ).
It now reads 'Network Programmer – Unannounced Project'. We know the truth!
