Terraria 2 is coming. It may be a while, Andrew "Redigit" Spinks told Rock, Paper, Shotgun, since he's still only planning the sidescrolling sandbox successor, but it will happen.
Spinks said creating and expanding Terraria taught him and his team a lot, and he's ready to start a new chapter in the surprise PC success story.
“I’m super excited about starting Terraria 2,” Spinks said. “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 want to expand on the whole Terraria universe.”
The original Terraria was a hit on Steam and eventually enjoyed success on XBLA and PSN, to boot. But with its last big content update completed, Spinks said it's time to move on.
“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 and change].”
Spinks said creating the original only took about four months, so hopefully we won't have to wait too long to hear more about Terraria 2.
