Fish has been a lightning rod for controversy for a number of comments that he has made. The reality is that he is an artist and perhaps like other artists, one that is does not do welling handling the media as well as the abuse the justified or not, that has been heaped on him.
While Fish has declared that he is done with the industry and he is taking the money and running, he does not address if he still intends to release a patch for the first Fez released on Xbox 360 that he recently promised he would complete in the next several months to address several known issues with the game. Fish recently confirmed that he would release a patch to correct these issues when Microsoft changed its policy on Xbox Live Arcade updates.
Maybe Fish will reconsider his position after he has some time to think things over as it would be a shame to see a developer as talented as Fish quit. We liked Fez very much and hate to hear that there will be no sequel.
