Fez II has been canceled, developer Phil Fish has announced.
"Fez II is cancelled," reads an update on the Polytron website.
"I am done. I take the money and I run," he added. "This is as much as I can stomach. This is isn’t the result of any one thing, but the end of a long, bloody campaign. You win."
On Twitter, Fish said he is getting out of the game industry entirely, "because I choose not to put up with this abuse anymore."
Fez II was announced in early June 2013 at the Horizon Indie Game Conference in Los Angeles. Outside of its existence, not much was known about the game.
The original Fez was released on the Xbox 360 in 2012, after five years of development, and saw a PC release in 2013. Fish's journey to release the game was chronicled in Indie Game: The Movie.
The game has sold 200,000 units on the Xbox 360.
