The sequel to the popular puzzle platformer, Fez, has been killed by its creator, Phil Fish in an epic Twitter battle with Marcus Beer of GameTrailers. The fight between Beer and Fish got so heated that Fish decided to cancel Fez II altogether.
The drama started when Beer wanted to reach out to independent game developers to interview them about Microsoft’s decision to let indie devs self-publish. Fish didn’t want to comment about Microsoft’s, which lead Beer to release some choice words about Fish being a “”tosspot” and a f—ing hipster.
Fish demanded a public apology from Beer but, as you can imagine, that never happened. By the end of their internet spat, Fish canceled Fez II, saying, “im done. FEZ II is canceled. goodbye.” Later, Fish’s development studio Polytron wrote an official post on the cancellation of Fez II.
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.
Polytron followed up with a tweet apologizing to fans “for the disappointment.”
It's with a heavy heart that we announce that FEZ II has been cancelled and is no longer in development. We apologize for the disappointment
