1.4[edit | edit source]
Development for 1.4 has not started yet, although a statement by Cenx on the official Terraria Discord server mentioned that the 1.4 update will have "a form of creative mode". This mode "won't just give you everything. It will all need to be earned", unlike traditional creative modes in other games.[discord 1]
Terraria Series[edit | edit source]
Following the release of the Terraria 1.3 update, lead developer Redigit has moved on to working on another project, though developers Yoraiz0r and Skiphs plan to continue updating Terraria into the future. While Redigit worked with the team to develop 1.3.5, it is unknown if he will continue developing updates after this.
Redigit stated that he plans to later release Terraria 2, a separate game from the canceled Terraria: Otherworld, although little information is known about the nature or content in the upcoming sequel.
