Phil fish is keeping things pretty quiet about Fez 2 but in a recent interview with Polygon when asked what platforms he’s considering to launch the sequel on his response was “not Xbox”.
Not good news then for Fez fans who where hoping for an Xbox release, however the hostility towards Microsoft comes as no surprise after things turned a little sour between both the developer Polytron and Microsoft after the games release in 2012.
After Polytron put a patch out to fix bugs in the game, the patch actually corrupted some saved game files and subsequently Microsoft pulled it, leaving Polytron with either a huge bill to sort the issue out or the option to re-release the slightly broken patch, they chose the latter saying that the file deletion bug was only effecting 1% of players.
Phil Fish seems to have moved on from last years events and seems to be a fan of the PlayStation 4 and it’s indie loving ways, in the interview with Polygon Phil wrote “One is having a big love-in orgy and the other is doing yet another fucking Minecraft port,”. Indie developers are receiving a lot of backing from Sony, at E3 last week they were given an extra boost as Sony bought the games and their developers into the booth.
When asked about the next installant Phil only had this to say “It exists, and Rich Vreeland is doing the music. That’s pretty much it”, he did however let us know to expect a completely new game, which is not what any Fez fan with an Xbox wants to hear.
