In an interview with PC Gamer, Terraria’s lead developer Andrew “Redigit” Spinks announced that going forward, there will be more frequent but smaller updates to the game.
Talking about the recent 1.3 update, Spinks also announced this will be the last update he works on before passing the game over to the rest of Re-Logic:
This will be the last update that I work on personally so it is hard to say what the future holds. That decision will be left up to the team that continues to work on Terraria. We like the idea of switching to smaller more frequent updates moving forward.
The interview also confirmed that Terraria 2 is planned alongside the upcoming Terraria: Otherworld, as well as a hint that mod support might be coming to the original game at some point in the future.
So Terraria’s still not done with after four years of post-launch support. It’s also coming to 3DS and Wii U soon too, so don’t think Re-logic is anywhere near done just yet.
