Rumour: Terraria May Be Getting A Long-Awaited Update
UPDATE: More hints are transpiring, as Redigit has tweeted this message.
Terraria — the popular voxel-based sandbox RPG lauded by critics and players alike — may be receiving a revitalizing and long-awaited update.
The game, which was hailed as the 2D counterpart of Minecraft, seemed to have been garnering the same levels of popularity as Mojang’s premiere title until several issues lead to development halting on the PC version of the game.
A year later, however, and we’ve recently spotted a post made by Andrew “Redigit” Spinks (the lead developer of Terraria), where he asked the community what they would have implemented into the game, were he to begin development again:
“Okay, let me pose a hypothetical. Say I am considering doing an update for the PC version of Terraria… In the event that such a thing were to take place, what would be some things that you would be interested in seeing?”

Since the thread’s arrival, the Terraria_Official account has been silent about this, save for a post which explains that the account in question is maintained by 505 Games, the development team behind the Terraria port for consoles.
Furthermore, Mr. Spinks seems to be teasing to the possibility as well, adding the following on Twitter:
