Phil Fish Announces Fez II, Most Likely April Fools’ Day Prank

Today is a tough day for journalists everywhere. Companies launch press releases for products that are far too cereal to be real, and ridiculous games are announced by witty developers. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to differentiate the pranks from the news — which brings us to Phil Fish’s announcement on Twitter. After quitting the industry in a storm of quotable’s and hatred, the Fez creator reported “im back! FEZ II is back on!”

Fans are obviously skeptical, considering the date on the calendar and the holes in their hearts. Humorously enough, Twitter doesn’t believe him either, with the advertised headline beneath his post related to April Fools’ Day pranks in gaming. With that said, there’s the slight possibility that Phil isn’t aiming for the shins with this one, and that he’ll in fact return to the industry that paved his sidewalks with gold. We doubt it, though.
