Terra Battle 2 North American Version Shuts Down in September
Mistwalker has announced that the North American version of its free-to-play mobile RPG Terra Battle 2 will be shutting down on September 3, 2018. The shutdown applies to both its Android and iOS versions, with sales of Super Energy and the store listings of the game already being removed. Normal and Super Energy currently in possession will be available for use until the game shuts down. Player data and Energy cannot be transferred between the regional versions of the game.
Terra Battle 2 was originally released in 2017 and is a sequel to Mistwalker’s previous mobile title Terra Battle, which released in 2014. A spin-off titled Terra Wars is currently in development, with a console game based on the series also planned. Producer Hironobu Sakaguchi provided the following statement regarding Terra Battle 2‘s shutdown in North America:
Dear Our North American Terra Battle 2 Players,
It is with a heavy heart we announce that in the coming months, we will be ending support for the North American version of Terra Battle 2. Service for the game will end on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2018 and In-App Purchases will be removed from the game immediately.
We regret having to announce this news to you all, who have passionately supported us since before the game’s release. Withdrawing support for Terra Battle 2 is not something we do lightly. The game will always be precious to myself, Fujisaka, and the entire Mistwalker team, as we know it is to our fans. We are very thankful for the amazing community that has grown alongside our games, and we will continue to work hard to grow alongside you in our future endeavors. From our Reddit community, to the Discords and the hard working Wiki team… To various Facebook and other social groups, we cannot express how much your support means to us.
Sadly, Terra Battle 2 was met with unexpected struggles, making it challenging for our team to maintain a sustainable and enjoyable experience.
We will continue developing games, reflecting on our experience from this game, to bring new experiences to fans around the world. The Mistwalker team and I are hard at work brainstorming future projects, with all of the knowledge that Terra Battle 2 has granted us. We hope for the world of Terra to live on, but the format, timing, and methods are still unknown to us at this time.
Thank you for your understanding and for being our fans,
