Polytron Cancels Fez 2

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.

FEZ II is cancelled.
i am done.
i take the money and i run.
this is as much as i can stomach.
this is isn’t the result of any one thing, but the end of a long, bloody campaign.

you win.

 

When Fez 2 was announced last month, it came as a bit of a surprise, but a welcome one at that. Though Fish has had his issues with the way the industry worked in the past, it appeared he and Polytron were willing to continue on in spite of those issues. Sadly, that’s just not the case anymore, and now we’ll never know how impressive Fez 2 could have been.

Unless Fish changes his mind in a few months.
