Andrew Spinks, the creative genius behind the side-scrolling sandbox title Terraria has just announced that his game will be expanding beyond the PC audience and will arrive on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace sometime next year.
505 Games will take up publishing responsibilities for the game and is confident that this indie title will find loads of success now that it is being opened up to a much larger audience. In fact, 505’s Tim Woodley had the following to say about the game’s 2013 launch:
The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery. We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content.
Spinks also expressed his excitement in having the game expand to the PlayStation and Xbox crowd, saying, “I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings.”
