Phil Fish Won’t Release Fez II For Xbox Platforms
The outspoken indie developer has had a troubled relationship with Microsoft, and stated in a recent interview that his planned platform for Fez II is "not Xbox."
Fish's Fez, which garnered high praise for its inventive, perspective-shifting puzzles, was released on Xbox 360. However, Fish became incensed when he claims Microsoft made it impossible for him to correct a patch problem that broke Fez for those gamers who had already completed the game. Fish said that Microsoft would have charged his company Polytron thousands of dollars to re-certify, making releasing a new patch economically impossible.
Obviously, the incident has left a bad taste in Fish's mouth, as it now appears that he won't be releasing his games for Microsoft platforms in the future. He did express possible interest in releasing Fez II for PlayStation 4. The original Fez also released on Steam for PC.
