Standoff over Patch Issue between Microsoft and Polytron Finally Ends

Standoff over Patch Issue between Microsoft and Polytron Finally Ends

After a year-long disagreement between Fez creator Phil Fish and Microsoft, the title will be finally dispatched. A patch for Fez has been released by Polytron. It fixed a number of bugs and glitches with the game found in June 2012. But it corrupted some saved files, which led to a standoff between Polytron and Microsoft

Fees for subsequent patches were charged by Microsoft, and Polytron said that it affected less than one percent users. It decided not to issue a patch.

But, Microsoft has now decided to abolish fees for updates. This paves the path for Fez patch to zap those remaining issues.

Fez creator Phil Fish is working on update for Fez on XBLA. Fish announced on Twitter that it is good news for everyone as they are going to patch FEZ on XBLA. This came after the reports that policies regarding Xbox game updates have been changed by Microsoft. It removed charges and obstacles that had previously shackled developers.

"Microsoft would charge us tens of thousands of dollars to re-certify the game", read a statement from Phil Fish's indie studio Polytron. However, recent reports dispelled the statement by revealing that Microsoft has lifted its policy of charging developers a sizeable sum for releasing game patches.
