The Console version of Terraria is published by 505 Games and developed by DR Studios. It is a port of the Desktop version Desktop version, which is developed by Re-Logic.

The console version is currently available natively on 6 different console systems (3 of which run on Old-gen consoles.) The game was released on the Nintendo Switch on June 27, 2019.[1] It is also playable on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backward compatibility.

The Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version is considered separate on this wiki, and has its own page and its own history. It will not receive any significant updates past its current Desktop version Desktop 1.2.1 equivalent.[2]

Due to hardware requirement issues and memory constraints, the Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, and Wii U, are considered Old-gen platforms and thus will no longer receive significant updates past the 1.2.4.1 Desktop version Desktop equivalent (see Old-gen console version Old-gen console version).[3][4][5]
