Terraria, the sandbox adventure game developer by Re-Logic, was initially launched on PC in 2011. As of the end of 2016, over 20 million copies have been sold on PC, PS3, Ps4 and PSVita.
“The entire team would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all of you for making all of this possible,” Re-Logic said.
“It has been a pleasure to have all of you along on the journey thus far, and we are really looking forward to continuing down that path. Terraria is a game — and a franchise — that has so much life left in it, and we cannot wait to share those plans with you in the months and years to come.”
The studio also announced that the console release of update 1.3 is “just around the corner”, the update that has greatly assisted with their sales figures. We are also anticipating an update on whether the still-under-development Terraria: Otherworld will be making the leap on to console.
