The next update for Stardew Valley is on the way. But before you go dancing in your field, you should know that this is an “update primarily focused on modding,” as creator Eric Barone himself explains.
A small update and two answers
While there will be some new content, fans shouldn’t set their expectations too high because the patch won’t be big.
Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone was responding to a Twitter user’s questions regarding the future of Stardew Valley and how it relates to Barone’s upcoming title Haunted Chocolatier.
1) 1.6, yes. But it’s mostly a modding-focused update (makes modders lives easier). There will be some new content but it won’t be huge. 1.7? Who knows.
2) Yes, but I haven’t decided how deep the connection will be exactly. I want Haunted Chocolatier to have its own identity
