Eric Barone, the creator and developer of Stardew Valley, took to Twitter to share some details about the upcoming content update for the game. This update comes just a few months after the game’s seventh anniversary, which was celebrated by Barone and the game’s community.
Despite being more than seven years old, Stardew Valley remains a popular game among players in both solo and multiplayer modes. The game’s previous major update, version 1.5, introduced a range of new features, including a beach farm, local split-screen co-op play, and additional characters, events, and items, all without any extra charge. Although version 1.5 is currently the biggest update to Stardew Valley, it was released two years ago, with smaller updates released periodically since then.

ConcernedApe recently took to Twitter to confirm that he is currently working on the next major update for Stardew Valley, version 1.6. While the upcoming update is expected to be smaller in scale than version 1.5, Eric has stated that it will focus on improving the ease of implementation and power of mods in the game.
The update is expected to bring new content, although details about it have not been disclosed yet. With consistent updates and a thriving modding community, players can expect Stardew Valley to continue to evolve and provide new experiences for years to come. Check out the tweet Eric posted below:
Nevertheless, ConcernedApe announced that he would take a break from developing his next video game project, Haunted Chocolatier, to focus on developing Stardew Valley version 1.6. He did not give a specific release date for the update, but with his shift in focus back to Stardew Valley, players can expect more updates on version 1.6 in the near future.
Stardew Valley has remained popular among gamers, with many investing significant amounts of time into the game. With support from ConcernedApe and the modding community, the game continues to thrive. Although there is no confirmed release date for version 1.6, it is likely that the update will first be available on PC before arriving on other platforms.
