"We have resolved the issue and the game is once again available. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused," the statement reads.

A GameSpot reader initially tipped the news yesterday, saying Fable II had mysteriously vanished. This person also said those who had previously purchased the game but deleted it, were not able to re-download it. This is no longer the case.
