Earlier today, a Twitter blowup between Polytron developer Phil Fish and Annoyed Gamer host Marcus Beef led to the immediate and unforeseen cancellation of Fez II. Hours later, Fish clarifies why he canceled the title.
Many believed that Phil Fish canceled the title because Marcus Beer had some unsavory things to say about him on the latest episode of Invisible Walls. However, Fish says that isn’t the case.
Fish also went to Polytron’s website to post the following:
“Fez 2 is cancelled. I am done. I take the money and I run. This is as much as I can stomach. This isn’t the result of any one thing, but the end of a long, bloody campaign. You win.”
Fish tweeted earlier in the day that he’s considered leaving the industry every day due to the abuse he’s faced from the media and consumers, alike. Today seems to be the day he’s quit.
