Fans of the game Fez may finally have a chance for a sequel, after designer Phil Fish, owner of the Polytron developer studio, cancelled Fez II after announcing it E3 2013. After an alleged* hacking that targeted Polytron, Phil Fish has announced that he is putting the company, as well as the intellectual property of Fez, up for sale.
“I would like to announce that POLYTRON and the FEZ IP are now for sale. No reasonable offer will be turned down. I am done. I want out.” – Phil Fish (Twitter account has been removed)
The website is still in maintenance mode after the incident, but hopefully more information will be released about the future of the developer, and of the IP of Fez, as Polytron sorts through the current chaos. With any luck, Polytron will be restored and fans will have a second chance to have Fez 2 again. As always, we will try to keep you posted on any new information announced about the fates of the Fez IP and Polytron.
