Terraria Cancelled for Stadia After Creator Loses Google Account Access

Re-Logic founder Andrew Spinks says doing business with Google “is a liability.”


Following his account being disabled for over three weeks, Terraria creator and Re-Logic founder Andrew Spinks has cancelled the game’s Stadia version. Spinks recently tweeted his frustration over the whole affair, noting that, “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.”

Along with losing “access to thousands of dollars of apps” on Google Play, Spinks said that his Google Drive data was gone. Access to YouTube and Gmail have also been lost. “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.”

Spinks then announced that Terraria was cancelled for Stadia and that his company would “no longer support” any of Google’s 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.”

As such, things haven’t been looking too hot for Stadia. Despite having some 400 games in development for the platform, Google announced the closure of its first party Stadia Games and Entertainment division. Jade Raymond, who joined as the head of Stadia Games and Services, is also set to leave the company. While new titles will certainly be released, it remains to be seen if Google can iron out its own issues in the meantime.

On the bright side, Terraria is currently available on numerous other platforms like Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS and yes, even Android. It received a massive update last year with Journey’s End, followed by Journey’s Actual End. Now, time will tell if this is really the end of Re-Logic’s free updates.
