Terraria Dev: ‘We’ve Decided to Move On’ (So No More Updates)
The developers at Re-Logic have updated Terraria for the last time, and they’ve decided it’s time to pursue new projects.
According to a couple of blog posts on TerrariaOnline.com, developer Redigit said he’s planning to take a “long holiday” (possibly even years long), but has already started planning for his next project. As PC Gamer reports:
‘I have learned a lot from working on Terraria and plan on using what I’ve learned, building upon it, and moving forward with another, even better project,’ he says. He’s also about to have a baby, which tends to get in the way of coding. And sleep. The other member of Re-Logic, Finn “Tiy” Brice has already moved elsewhere to work on Starbound.
Meanwhile, another post from site admin Kane says that Terraria Online isn’t going anywhere and fans will still be able to play and enjoy it; the dev team just isn’t going to be putting any more work into the game.
However, Terraria has seen plenty of mod support from its community, so it’s likely that even without official support from the developer, the game will subsist for quite a while into the future.
