Polytron's Phil Fish announced via Twitter recently that he will finally patch a long standing bug on his Xbox Live Arcade title FEZ. Last week it came to light that - earlier in the year - Microsoft had ditched its policy of charging developer tens of thousands of dollars to do title updates beyond the one free title update they would get after publishing a game on XBLA. Fish lashed out last week at Microsoft because that same policy kept him from providing fans with a fix for a nasty bug. Now all that seems to be water under the bridge.
"GOOD NEWS EVERYONE: we're going to patch FEZ on XBLA!" he wrote on Twitter.
"It's going to take a few months, though," he added, "but we're doing it!"
"IT'S A 4TH OF JULY MIRACLE."
The patch should fix an earlier patch that corrupted a small number of player's save files.
We'll let you know when that update is deployed.
