Welcome back to the strange and bizarre world that is FEZ creator Phil Fish’s relationship with games and the games industry. It was announced on the Polytron Corporation website today that the sequel to the game FEZ is being cancelled, only a month or so after it was announced at the Horizon indie press conference at E3 this year. Fish wrote on the Polytron website, “FEZ II is cancelled. i am done. i take the money and run. this is as much as i can stomach. this isn’t the result of any one thing, but the end of a long, bloody campaign. you win.”
The official Polytron Twitter feed was a little more delicate in their announcement:
There is a lot of “he said, she said” flying around the internet concerning the cancellation of FEZ II, but until there is a more formal response from Phil Fish or anyone else at Polytron, it benefits no one to speculate on what is happening behind the scenes. It is a shame that FEZ II is being cancelled, as the original FEZ was such a wonderful surprise, and in spite of some of its shortcomings it was one of the best indie games developed in 2012.
