Terraria has sold 35m copies

Sandbox title Terraria has sold more than 35 million copies since its launch back in 2011.

The milestone was announced by developer Re-Logic via its forums, with the studio saying that the game has shifted more than 17.2 million on PC alone. The mobile edition has sold more than 9.3 million copies, while the console edition has shifted 8.5 million units.

The game sold 30 million copies as of April 2020.

"All of this comes less than a year's time from when we celebrated crossing the 30 million barrier," the studio wrote.

"Simply put, the momentum for Terraria has never been stronger than it is right this moment. When you add that to what is still to come this year with Console Journey's End, Steam Workshop Support, getting to parity content for everyone... and then the possibility of crossplay down the line (we hope!), you could easily say that Journey's End may have arrived, but the journey for Terraria is far from over.

"Every time we think we have seen it all with regards to the sheer level of support and love you all show us, you always find ways to take it to the next level. It is appreciated, and it is what drives us all to do our very best each and every day. Again, we can only hope to return the favor and do right by your passionate support by continuing to provide amazing gaming experiences for years to come (whether it be on Terraria or future games that we create)."
