Assuming there are no more hiccups, the Stadia version of Terraria is dated for release in March.

Following a rather public spat between developer Re-Logic and Google, it has been confirmed that sandbox adventure game Terraria will finally be released for Stadia on March 18, 2021.

The game was first revealed to be coming to Google’s game streaming service in early February, when it was certified by the European rating board, PEGI.

The release was subsequently thrown into doubt following tweets by Re-Logic CEO Andrew Spinks, in which he said the Stadia edition was cancelled due to his Google accounts being locked.

Peace broke out a few weeks later, with Re-Logic confirming in a blog post that account access was restored and Terraria had been submitted to Google for certification:

“After a month of pushing (and with the immense support of our fans), Google finally reached out and was able to provide a lot of transparency around the situation and to restore access to all of our accounts. Due to the hard work the Stadia team has put in – as well as our partners at 505 Games – we have decided that we will allow the upcoming launch Terraria on Google Stadia to proceed.”

The Stadia Twitter account has today confirmed a happy ending to the story, with the official announcement that Terraria will join the platform next week.
