It's not everyday that a game is in development, gets cancelled, gets uncancelled, and then does in fact get released, but such is the case with the Stadia version of Terraria. Initially it was cancelled because co-developer Andrew Spinks was locked out of his Google account losing access to thousands of dollars in apps and digital items. As such Spinks said that the Stadia port of Terraria was cancelled and Re-Logic would no longer support any Google platform. After about a month though the situation was resolved (though I haven't seen what happened to have it locked to begin with) and Spinks allowed development on Terraria to continue with the game launching yesterday on Stadia. That's good news for Stadia players who enjoy Terraria, though one may wonder just what happened to have Spinks' account locked to start with.
