There's no way what would happen. 1.4 is made up of over a year of work and it's impossible for them to port that to console in just a month. Console will get 1.3.4 in november and pc will get 1.4 in december/possibly early next year.That's just it. If they do release 1.4 for PS4/XB1 simultaneously with PC, it'll prove that 1.4 has been ready for a while for the PC, and they deliberately withheld it to let the console versions catch up.
I wouldn't mind that, if the update also fixes hardmode corruption/hallow so that's it's random again.I just wish I had block swap... That's all I'm wanting atm. I can wait for 100+ items but I just want a block swap update that would hold me over for 100 hours.
