Re-Logic has cancelled its Terraria spinoff, Terraria: Otherworld, due to the game being behind schedule and far away from the original vision.

“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,” the developer explained. “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.”

Due to the time it will take to get the game back on track and the impact it will have on the developer’s other projects, the decision has been made to cancel the game.

“We sincerely thank both of our external development teams for their hard work on the game, but at some point, we have to be honest with ourselves and realize that Otherworld simply is never going to reach its potential in any sort of reasonable time or fashion,” the developer added.

Re-Logic went on to promise that development of the PC, console, and mobile versions of Terraria will continue, and that update 1.3.6 is in active development.

Terraria: Otherworld was officially announced in early 2015 and would have placed players in an alternate dimension within the Terraria universe.
