Fez 2 canceled

Fez 2 has been canceled. The abrupt termination of the project is as sudden as its announcement, which involved a teaser trailer and little more. On the Polytron official website, game creator Phil Fish wrote "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."

"You win," he added.

Given Fez's penchant for out-of-the-box puzzles, some fans believe this is actually a hoax, or an elaborate ploy to raise awareness for his game. However, he told Joystiq that "it's true" the game has been canceled. According to Kotaku the sudden cancellation of the game was triggered by a dispute he had on Twitter.

"I f---ing hate this industry," Fish apparently responded. "It's just not worth it anymore," he told Kotaku in a statement.
