Journey's End, the final major update to Re-Logic's 2011 2D adventure sandbox game Terraria, is facing a delay. Players will have to wait until 2020 to see what's in store.

Created back in 2011, Terraria is a 2D platformer that gets many comparisons to Minecraft since it lets players shape the world. Nevertheless, it's managed to stand out due to its focus on exploring the world and battling creatures large and small. Various major updates over the years have added heaps of content to the game, including new biomes, a harder world difficulty, and a final boss. Announced at the tail end of summer, the Journey's End update is slated to be the final major content update. Players can expect to find over 800 new items, a new difficulty known as Master mode, an in-game bestiary, and golf.

There's been some speculation that Journey's End would be delayed for some time now. This morning, we've got confirmation on the delay from the official Reddit and the official Terraria wiki, which goes into more detail on their decision:

In the end, it comes down to a hard choice: scrap a bunch of the cool stuff that we want to see in Journey's End and force this out for 2019 or go ahead and push it into 2020 and make sure that we don't cut corners or leave a ton of things on the cutting room floor to hit that deadline. Re-Logic has never been about cutting corners or leaving things short of our goals throughout the history of Terraria - and with Journey's End being the final update, that philosophy needs to be underscored even further as we do not necessarily have a 1.4.X update coming "to pick up content that we didn't have time to finish".

Terraria's Journey's End update will release sometime in 2020 for PC.
