The patch was first announced at E3 2019. During the event, the studio noted in a statement on Terraria‘s official website that they “do not currently have any plans to tackle additional updates, outside of fixes and maybe a few tidbits here and there to shore things up” after the release of Terraria: Journey’s End.
Re-Logic added that the release of “Terraria: Journey’s End means that we will finally be tackling our second title.” “We do not yet know what this will be – and it may not even be a Terraria title – so expect a time of silence from us on that front until we are ready to share more what we decide to pursue.”
