Terraria on Google Stadia Cancelled After Developer Founder’s Google Accounts Disabled


The Google Stadia version of Terraria has been cancelled, after Re-Logic’s founder stated his Google account was disabled with no warning.

Andrew Spinks took to Twitter to express how his account had been disabled for over three weeks; losing access to Google Play, Google Drive, his YouTube channel, and his Gmail account. After three weeks of attempting to resolve the issue to no success, Spinks announced Terraria was cancelled on Google Stadia due to poor customer service.

“@Google my account has now been disabled for over 3 weeks. I still have no idea why, and after using every resource I have to get this resolved you have done nothing but given me the runaround.

My phone has lost access to thousands of dollars of apps on @GooglePlay. I had just bought LOTR 4K and can’t finish it. My @googledrive data is completely gone. I can’t access my @YouTube channel. The worst of all is losing access to my @gmail address of over 15 years.

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. #Terraria for @GoogleStadia is canceled. My company will no longer support any of your platforms moving forward.

I will not be involved with a corporation that values their customers and partners so little. Doing business with you is a liability.”

This is far from the first bad news Google Stadia has had this month. Google announced at the start of February they will shutdown Stadia Games & Entertainment; alongside the end of internal investing towards exclusive content for their cloud gaming console.

The final major update for Terraria– dubbed Journey’s End– launched on May 2020, with the 1.4.1 update in October 2020 being the last content update for the game.

Oft compared to Minecraft, Terraria is a 2D sandbox action-adventure game where players must explore a randomly generated world, mine resources, and craft items to create buildings and gear. The game also has NPCs that need homes to be built to offer their services, crafting accessories to grant new abilities, and bosses that ramp up in difficulty.

Terraria is available on Windows PC, Mac, Linux (all via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
