It’s possible that Stardew Valley may yet receive a 1.6 update, or at least further updates after last month’s minor patch to fix some long-standing bugs. In a new interview with developer Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone, he says that – despite moving on to Haunted Chocolatier – “there’s always room for improvement” on Stardew Valley.
Last month, Barone released a couple of updates for Stardew Valley – versions 1.5.5 and 1.5.6. While the developer teased new content with the earlier patch, when 1.5.6 finally showed up it only had a few minor fixes to the game’s mod support – welcome, for sure, but not what players were hoping for.
Beyond that, it’s been over a year since the release of Stardew Valley’s substantial 1.5 update and players were probably hoping for a 1.6 version to offer something similar. Now, in an interview with Vgkami on Haunted Chocolatier, Barone suggests it might still happen – but he currently doesn’t have any plans either way.
