This is a short summary of the future plans for Factorio.

Refer to Roadmap/History for past versions of the roadmap and to upcoming features for a more detailed and up-to-date list of upcoming features.

Factorio 1.1 (stable since January 26 2021)

  • The 1.1 release is the final release of the vanilla game.
    • It will be maintained, so bugfixes, simple modding interface additions, or minor tweaks can happen, but that's about it. [1]

Factorio Expansion Pack

This is a short overview of the expansion pack, for more details see Upcoming features.

The expansion pack is a set of 3 extra mods that will be released with version 2.0 as a paid expansion. The mods are:

  • Space Age, featuring 4 new planets, space platforms, and a reworked tech tree
  • Quality, allowing drastic improvements to buildings and items as a "vertical" growth
  • Elevated Rails, for improved rail routing and better intersections

Note: Both the expansion and the first mod are called Space Age.

Other info

  • The future plan is to release "one big expansion pack", see Friday Facts #365 - Future plans
  • As of August 2023, development is at the end of step 5 "First pass of tweaking" out of 7 total steps until release. (Factorio Friday Facts 373 - Factorio: Space Age)
  • According to Factorio Friday Facts 373 - Factorio: Space Age the expansion pack will be titled Factorio: Space Age and will have the player launch into space and explore other planets, using space platforms to get around between them. The expansion will significantly rebalance the tech tree, making it possible to research the rocket silo using chemical science and limiting certain technologies behind science packs and resources that can only be found on the other planets. The expected release date is around August 2024.

Factorio 2.0

  • Factorio 2.0 will be the base game version that is released alongside the expansion for free. Some expected features are:
    • Improved control of train systems,
    • Better blueprint building.
    • Better flying robot behaviour.

Expensive Mode

The expensive mode will be moved from the base game into a separate mod. [2] It will be part of the base game purchase, however. [3]
