Terraria Stadia Port Canceled As Creator Blasts Google – ‘Bridges Burned’

Terraria Google Stadia

Since completing its final content update last year, Terraria developer Re-Logic has since spent its efforts extending the pixelated sandbox title to new platforms such as the Nintendo Switch. Readily available on nearly every current platform, the studio has been primed to deliver a version for streaming service Google Stadia sometime in the future. However, it now appears this is now no longer the case following a frustrated statement from the series’ creator.

Revealed over a series of posts on Twitter, Terraria creator Andrew Spinks recalled his repeated attempts to reclaim his disabled Google account. According to Spinks, his account first experienced disruption 3 weeks ago, leaving the developer without access to personal files, store purchases, as well as professional accounts such as the official Re-Logic YouTube channel. Constant calls to restore access have largely been met with “the runaround,” he said, as Google continued to remain ineffective to the dev’s complaints.

In the last few days, it appears Spinks finally felt that enough was enough, expressing the whole ordeal has turned him off to ever using Google-branded products again. This includes stopping all development on Re-Logic’s upcoming Google Stadia port of Terraria, which was announced as being “canceled” in the aforementioned posts. “I will not be involved with a corporation that values their customers and partners so little,” he exclaimed. “Doing business with you is a liability.”

I absolutely have not done anything to violate your terms of service, so I can take this no other way than you deciding to burn this bridge. Consider it burned.”

Considering the game’s wide availability on multiple generations of platforms, Terraria not coming to Stadia probably won’t be a significant loss among fans. However, seeing such a popular game de-confirmed likely isn’t the best news for Google, as it happens as the company’s streaming platform is already experiencing its own internal turbulence. As Stadia still holds tremendous promise, it might still be possible for the streamer to succeed, though, it doesn’t appear Terraria will be waiting around in the meantime.

Terraria is out now for ​Android, ​​iOS, ​​Linux, ​​Mac, ​​PC, ​​Nintendo Switch, ​​PlayStation 4, ​​and Xbox One as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility.
