Taking a bit longer than expected, Lionhead Studios recently released a patch for the Fable 2 Pub Games that not only reset the Fortunes Tower leaderboards but also FIXED the gold exploit. Yes sir, a new patch to fix what Peter Molyneux told us was an "intentional" bug that allowed players to rack up millions in gold. Eh?
So, this patch release leads us to one of two conclusions. Either Molyneux told the truth, the glitch was intentional and players will somehow be affected when playing Fable 2 OR we've been lied to, the exploit was completely unintentional and Molynuex was covering up the fact. No matter what conclusion you end up on, we won't know the truth until October.
