Terraria's getting a sequel
Terraria's had a rather interesting development process. It all started back when developer Redigit informed fans that he was halting all work on the game. There would be no further updates, no additional content...nothing. Terraria was for all intents and purposes done for.
Except that it wasn't.
Seven months later, Redigit returned with a staggeringly massive update, diving back into development with all the fervor of a mad scientist working in his laboratory. Now, he's informed Rock Paper Shotgun that he is again moving to another project...Terraria 2.
"I actually planned, when I first quit Terraria, to have been halfway through my next project by now," he informed RPS. "But it just didn't happen. Instead, I decided to work on another update for Terraria to please the fans a little bit."
"I'm super excited about starting Terraria 2," he continued. "It's a ways out, but it's gonna have a lot in common with the original. It's gonna be quite different as well. I really wanna expand on the whole Terraria universe.There’s a lot of stuff I’m locked into with Terraria. The way loot works, the way character progression works. In Terraria 2, I really want to have infinite worlds so you’re not just stuck to one world. You can travel anywhere. I want more biome diversity in that, too. There's a lot of stuff I want to add; a lot of stuff I want to change."
Before that happens, however, Redigit's got a few more things to add to the first game.
"There's a lot of stuff that I didn't have time to put [into update 1.2]. For instance, there’s no final endgame boss. So I plan on, within the next month or two, finishing the endgame progression. I also have some ideas for a Halloween update I’d like to do too. I think people will get a kick out of that. So there might be a few more updates, maybe three or four months out.”
So, yeah. More stuff coming to the first Terraria, and a sequel's on its way some time in the near future. Good news, no?
