Phil Fish is done with game development; Fez II cancelled

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Phil Fish hasn't exactly been the least controversial figure in the independent development scene of late, with a number of comments under his belt that seem custom-tailored to aggravate and alienate. Because of this, he's attracted his fair share of ire from both fans and media outlets alike.

As it turns out, all this bile has finally proven too much for him to handle. 

"I'm done," he tweeted a few days ago. "Fez II is canceled. Goodbye." A short time later, Polytron  later confirmed the news on its official twitter. Neither one has elaborated on the specifics; Fish has since made his Twitter account private.

This news comes on the tail-end of an attack by GameTrailers' Invisible Walls host Marcus Beer, who directly attacked both Fish and Blow, insulting them and calling them out for refusing to answer media questions about Microsoft's Xbox One policy change. Evidently, Beer was calling for a total media boycott of both Blow and Fish. Fish, meanwhile, lost it, diving into a heated exchange in which he called Beer a leech and told him to kill himself. Apparently, that was a quote from Futurama.

Eventually, something else snapped in Fish, and he simply... gave up.

There's no word on what's going to happen now, or if Fish is ever going to get back into the development scene. For the time being, at least, it would appear as though the industry has lost a talented and promising - if more than a little abrasive - developer.
