However, it’s not the first time that Re-Logic has promised a Terraria update will be the 2D game’s last. The game’s Journey’s End update, released in 2020, was intended to be the final addition – yet five months after the update, Re-Logic released another “final” update, titled Journey’s Actual End.
Terraria’s journey did not actually end there, either. Since then, the game has seen a number of crossover events, such as with Klei Entertainment’s Don’t Starve. On top of that, Re-Logic also released the Labor Of Love update earlier this year.
Terraria‘s sixth “final” update is coming at a yet-unspecified date in 2023, and will feature a crossover event between with Motion Twin’s Dead Cells. The crossover comes after Terraria content was added to Dead Cells in the game’s most recent update, which was released earlier this month.

Re-Logic is being tight-lipped about what to expect in this final update to the game, noting in a post on their official forums that “work on this update will begin in earnest when the team starts work in the new year – and after all of the needed hotfixes for 1.4.4 are completed. What will Terraria 1.4.5 contain? Well, you will just have to wait and see when the time comes.”
The developer promised more information in the “weeks and months ahead,” teasing that 2023 could be the year that crossplay becomes available in the game.
