FEZ II Canceled, Phil Fish Leaves Game Development

The recently announced sequel to Polytron's charming puzzle-platformer has officially been canned, as FEZ creator Phil Fish has decided to get out of the games business.

The cancellation of FEZ II was made public via a post on the developer's official blog. Here's what Fish had to say:

FEZ II is cancelled.
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.

Fish has since taken to Twitter to explain why he has decided to cancel the game and subsequently get out of game development, saying, "To be clear, im not cancelling FEZ II because some boorish f**k said something stupid. im doing it to get out of games." In a followup tweet he added, "and im getting out of games because i choose not to put up with this abuse anymore."

So there you have it. No more video games from Phil Fish. Are you disappointed that we won't be getting FEZ II? Let us know what you think of the whole ordeal in the comments below.
