Updates will come to an end eventually but as a business they are still making money on it. So why not more updates? And zero doubt once this is done there will be a Terraria 2 regardless of updates or not. I mean this next update hits the brick wall of no more liquids capable of being added then.
Edit: I personally prefer them to fully flesh out part one before working on or releasing part 2 with hopefully a stronger game engine.
eh, i suppose... but how long until updates cause instability or hit a wall in the current versions?
after all, the previous gen couldn't take anything beyond 1.2.
that's one concern i have.
i don't want the game to be broken, or for them to add so much without thinking about console, only to find out too late the console versions won't be able to have a certain update, leaving the plan screwed over and the game incomplete on consoles.
just imagine, with the final goal being crossplay, but they push the game to the absolute limit, and consoles are unable to have the actual final update for whatever reason... that's just going to be one huge kick in the teeth for everyone, and the PC side will just fan the flames, cause that's what they like to do.
