Terraria Grounded

The Terraria Website has word that development the game is at an end (thanks nin via Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Here's word:

The future of Terraria has been highly debated as of late, not just with the community, but for us as well. The last year has been a crazy ride! When I started on this game, I just had a few ideas of what I thought would make a fun game. I had no idea that it would receive so much attention. I want to thank all of you for supporting us and making this game's success possible.

After a lot of internal debate, we have decided that it is time to move on. My wife and I are due to have another boy soon, and I want to spend some time getting to know him. I also want to spend the time recharging and bettering myself as both a programmer and game designer. 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. However, we are still planning at least one more bug fix for Terraria.

For those that haven't already heard, Finn "Tiy" Brice has moved on to form Chucklefish and is heavily at work on an exciting new game called “Starbound”. It's looking to be a lot of fun, so make sure to check it out if you haven't already!

Thanks again for all your support, and I am very much looking forward to providing you with something much better than Terraria in the future!

I'm a little surprised by some of the posts I've seen here and there, expecting him to just continue adding things. I felt like he did great post-release support and additions, and I certainly didn't expect them to continue forever.

Great game, and congrats to him. I look forward to what he does next.

I had the same experience hearing this news. I was in a room on voice chat with some friends and one of them was talking about seeing this news on reddit, and all of a sudden I hear nothing but negative tones and vows to not get his next project/game.

I couldn't help but feel that some folks were being a bit too ridiculous about this, as if just because they bought a $5 steam game they are entitled to updates for life? It was a great little game, was updated extensively, with close to 2 times the amount of original content.. and he said he would release a final bug-fix.

I'm also looking forward to his next project.
