A Journey’s End
Early development notes of Terraria’s final update states that Journey’s end will include more than a thousand new items. Also, it will have multiple weapon types, various furniture sets, consumable items, and so much more. Besides, Non-Character Players (NPC) will now come in groups or towns and will have happiness levels.

Going back to the possibility of a sequel, teased the idea of Terraria 2. The concept has been around as early as 2013. One of the game’s designers Andrew “Redigit” Spinks stated that the sequel has been in “various phases of planning for some time.” However, he decided to focus more on the existing title in terms of improvements and contents.
“I planned, when I first quit Terraria, to have been halfway through my next project by now,” Spinks told RPS during a recent interview. “But it just didn’t happen. Instead, I decided to work on another update for Terraria to please the fans a little bit.” Andrew “Redigit” Spinks is speaking to Rock Paper Shotgun. Based on this statement, it is fair to say that Terraria 2 is already in the works, and Journey’s End could be a sneak peek of some of the features included in the sequel.
As exciting as it may seem, it may be too early to anticipate the features coming in Terraria 2. Nevertheless, in the same interview, the designer also shared his excitement in starting the development of the sequel.
As a teaser, though, Andrew said that he wants Terraria 2 to feature infinite worlds and the land of possibilities. For sure, it will not only be the sound and avid fans that might get excited about this news.
