Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, left Square many years ago to found his own studio, Mistwalker. After releasing several JRPGs on consoles, Sakaguchi entered the world of mobile games but hasn’t managed to make his mark. Now it’s time to say goodbye to his longest-running project in this field.
Mistwalker announced that Terra Battle will close its servers on June 30th. This ends the six-year history of this mobile strategy and role-playing game that brought Sakaguchi back to the scene.
From today, it will no longer be possible to purchase the game currency that is bought with real money, although you can spend the one you have before the final closing.
This is a tremendous blow to what has been the only successful title in Mistwalker’s Terra saga. Its sequel, Terra Battle 2, and its spin-off, Terra Wars, lasted very little time in the market. The studio decided to withdraw them after seeing their poor performance and negative reviews.
However, Mistwalker continues to develop new projects. Sakaguchi reminds us in his statement that they are still working on Fantasian, which will be available for Apple Arcade on a date yet to be determined.
