[Update] After Joystiq posted a story about a release date for Fez, Polytron's Phil Fish, who is the lead designer and artist behind Fez, spoke to the site and said that the release date is inaccurate and that that game has not been certified by Microsoft.

Fish also spoke up on twitter to make it completely clear that May 2 is not the release date for Fez.

[Original story] We knew it would be this year, but the continually delayed game finally has a solid release date.

For the unfamiliar, Fez was supposed to release back in 2010. It's a 2D platformer that allows perspective switching in 3D to rotate the environment, and it looks awesome.

Fez will be available exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade (for the time being) on May 2.
