Terraria: Otherworld cancelled after more than three years in development”Quality is simply not something we are willing to compromise on to make a quick buck,” says Re-LogicHaydn TaylorSenior Staff WriterMonday 16th April 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleRe-Logic GamesTerraria: Otherworld has been cancelled by Re-Logic Games after more than three years in development.Otherworld — a spin-off from the studio’s 2011 debut title Terraria — has been axed following a status review of the game which revealed it was well behind expectations. “Our team has a clear vision for this game… in spite of all of our efforts, the current state of the game remains equal parts far from that vision and beyond behind schedule from our initial planning,” said the developer in a blog post. From there, the developer decided that reimagining the game was not a viable option, and that such time consuming work would interfere with other ongoing projects. Re-Logic added: “Come whatever may, quality is simply not something we are willing to compromise on to make a quick buck.”Following the decision, Re-Logic lamented having shared the game with fans so early into production, saying it will “fully own that error in judgement”. Parts of project had been outsourced to Re-Logic’s partners at 505 Games and Pipeline Games, a move the developer said it should have given more consideration.

We will share more information there just as soon as we have it.”The partnership with 505 and Pipeline will continue as the teams refocus on console and mobile.
