Future Terraria patches or development is not confirmed, only the ports
Terraria's last major patch was in December of 2011 and development officially ended two months later in February, 2012. Many thought that could be the last we'd ever here about the popular 2D adventure title, but apparently this story hasn't ended just yet. Today, it was announced that Terraria is being ported to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, to be made available as a downloadable title.
Let's be clear, these are straight ports by third-party developers (505 Games and Engine Software specifically) with little to no involvement by creator Andrew Spinks or his team that's since gone on to greener pastures. That won't stop the port devs from adding a little something something though, according to Spinks:
"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. It's always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction! It's been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can't wait for everyone to see the additional features that they've been able to bring to this new edition of the game."
If you're a console gamer potentially interested in a 2DMinecraft with a ton of action adventure gameplay mixed in, get excited about Terraria. It was one of my personal favorite games of 2011. Honestly, Terraria's newfound life is a little melancholy, considering the original team behind the game is no more. Who knows, maybe if these console releases sell well development will pick up once more.

Error404 He was making fun of you, instead of being polite and asking if you have Terraria for PC, he decided to mock you. I'm with you, though, I can't wait to go mining and spelunking on the console, day one purchase!

A bit disappointing but I can't say much given the PS3 and Xbox community will be denied mods anyway which are part of what keep the game going right now.
In the meantime I'll just hold strong for the remaining team to keep working on Starbound though and go from there. new horizons await.
