A little under a year after release, Mistwalker Studios' mobile title Terra Battle 2 will be shutting down its North American services. The game's services will be terminated on September 3rd at 10:00 PM PDT. As of now, the app has been removed from the North American iOS and Android stores, and it cannot be re-installed if deleted from the user's phone. For those still using the app before the September 3rd cutoff date, the sale of Super Energy has been discontinued.
Hironobu Sakaguchi, Mistwalker's founder and famed creator of the Final Fantasy franchise, released a statement regarding the game's shutdown.
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,
