Polytron Cancels Fez 2Luke Brown |
It certainly wasn't a good week for Fez 2, as the game's creator Phil Fish got into a heated argument on Twitter, which eventually led to the cancellation of the anticipated sequel.
After an unfortunate back-and-forth discussion with a outspoken gaming personality Marcus Beer, Fish told the man to "kill himself," then thought better of it and deleted the tweet. According to Kotaku, the spirited debate centered on Fish's unwillingness to comment on the news about Microsoft potentially allowing indie developers to self-publish on the Xbox One.
Not soon after, Fish tweeted how he hated the gaming industry, and just before protecting his account, announced he was cancelling Fez 2. Soon after, Polytron made the news official with a post on the company's blog with a curt and simple statement.
