Lionhead working on Fable II 'Abbot' glitch fix

Lionhead has gone and fessed up to a particularly irritating glitch many Fable II players have unfortunately stumbled upon. Specifically, when speaking to an abbot at the outset of the "Monk's Quest," the game will simply not let you progress any further if you choose to brush the guy off and walk away while he's talking.

The developer said in a post on its official forums that, "Some things slip through the net during development, especially when a game is the size and scope of Fable II," and went on to offer its apologies to those affected. It doesn't have any advice, though, for what to do if you're already stuck. It is planning a title update to patch the bug – so that this doesn't happen to anyone else – but hasn't provided an ETA.
