Terraria to be released at retail due to “lack of digital uptake” in certain markets

Terraria will be released at retail, according to Publisher 505 Games, because it missed out on sales being released digitally. The digital version has moved 2 million units, but 505 hopes a physical release will help pad sales after being released in more retail-centric markets. “Different territories have different digital acceptance,” said head of global brand Tim Woodley. “We’re releasing Terraria in a box in September as we think the lack of digital uptake in France, Germany, Italy etc is prohibiting sales. Terraria has done incredibly via digital, but most of the numbers are from the US.” The game has sold 110,000 units in Japan with most of the sales coming from retail. Thanks, MCV,
