Turns out the date Microsoft has listed for Fez
is completely wrong. Polytron's Phil Fish has informed us that Fez
has no set release date, that the May 2, 2012 date listed on the Xbox Live Marketplace is incorrect, and that the game hasn't even been certified by Microsoft. We sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and have reached out to Microsoft for comment.
It's been a long time coming, but it looks like the wait for Polytron's Fez
is finally nearing its end. The adorable pixel art indie darling will arrive on May 2, according to the Xbox Live Marketplace
Originally slated to launch in 2009
's development has been characterized by repeated delays, as well as accolades from the indie-gaming community. It is also one of the titles featured in Indie Game: The Movie
, which is an official selection at this year's SXSW Film festival. Here's hoping the game can download in less time than it took to develop.
