Fez 2 won't come to Xbox platforms

Fez 2 will not be released on Microsoft platforms after developer Phil Fish announced he won't be bringing it to Xbox One or Xbox 360.

In an interview with Polygon, Fish said that by continuing refusal to allow indie developers to self-publish on Xbox Live, Microsoft won't be seeing his game.

When asked what platforms the game would be available on via Twitter, he replied, "not Xbox." 

Do you think Microsoft will continue to run into this problem considering its stance on not allowing self-publishing on Xbox LIVE?

Seems a lot of Indies coming out and moaning about Microsofts decision about no self publishing

This is going to be an issue that MS see for years. But the stories that have been floating about for years about how they treat their indie guys have shown their contempt for the guys behind these games. You know what, it's fine. PS and PC will get them, and I'll happily pay for indie games!

MS only want their 'indie' games to be Minecraft.

Where would we be without Indie games (I don't count Minecraft anymore, cos if you have more money than all of the indie guys combined, you not indie)

Hopefully see it on Wii U or 3DS then, as I enjoyed the first one, even if the guy is a massive douche.

I have friends who got Minecraft when it was a free beta on PC, I bought it for £8, I know most people bought it when it was £16. At least it is only about £15 on xbox.

I'm sure MS don't care too much - they never really made a real effort with indies.

Considering how big Fez was on XBLA, that's got to be a another piece of embarassing PR for MS in a week where they already have plenty to go around. A lot of indie devs have been speaking out about them and their treatment of indies of late, and still they refuse to do anything to make it easier to get independently produced games on their marketplace... as well as leaving ridiculous rules in place for indies to jump through before they will even be considered. When even Nintendo is more plugged in to what is needed from modern digital marketplaces that you are, you'd think it'd be a wake up call.
