Re-Logic has announced that the open world/sandbox arena game based on Terraria, Terraria: Otherworld, has been cancelled. The game was cancelled because it remains equal parts far from Re-Logic’s vision and beyond behind schedule from its initial planning.
As Re-Logic stated:
“Our team has a clear vision for this game – one that we shared with all of you with much shared excitement – and, 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 when we shared Otherworld with all of you three years ago. Progress has absolutely been made during that time – but unfortunately, a very thorough status review of the game versus its intended design showed both the Re-Logic and 505/Pipeworks teams that things were quite a bit further away from the finish line than we had imagined. Taking the massive amount of work that would be remaining to complete along with the extensive time it would take to get that done, and how that would greatly interfere with the pursuit of other projects on behalf of Re-Logic – it becomes clear that this leaves things in a very undesirable state.”
Terraria: Otherworld was announced in 2015 and was meant to be a world/sandbox arena game that would expand upon the original game and would approach gameplay in a new direction.
