The developers behind the huge update for the popular video game Terraria have announced that it will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch system in January. The Journey’s End update originally came to the PC last year and provided owners of the game with new ways to play the game to over 1000 new items to find and craft to new bosses and much more. It will land on the Nintendo Switch on 4th January.
”We know the big question will be “why can it not come out before the end of the year if you are so close right now?” The reality there is that companies – including Nintendo – are nearing the end of the year/holidays. As we all know, that means a lot of folks out on vacation and/or full company shutdowns.”
“If we were to release – say in December – this would create a scenario where if there are any bugs or issues at all, they would essentially be impossible to fix (even if DR had a fix made instantly) until probably sometime in mid-January. It is just an unfortunate dynamic of this time of year. This gets the update out just as soon as possible in the new year, avoiding that risk.”
“While we are confident in this build, every launch has some bugs, and we just don’t want to put everyone in a situation where there are issues that everyone is powerless to address. Now, that said, the team will continue to test and fix in the meantime and go ahead and get whatever else they can find already in the queue.”
