stardew valley Creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone teased when the game’s long-awaited 1.6 update will finally be released. Right now, Barone is working on the stardew valley tracking game the haunted chocolatier. Despite this, the development of the beloved farming simulator also continues. And while we don’t yet know when the next major update will arrive for stardew valley will be released, Barone has provided more context on the arrival of this patch.
In a recent interaction on social media, Barone answered a fan question regarding the release date of update 1.6 for stardew valley. In short, Barone said the patch will only be released “when it’s ready” and didn’t commit to a release window of any kind. As such, it’s hard to tell if the update could still arrive before the end of 2022 or instead won’t be released until 2023 or later. However, given the amount of work Barone has on his plate at any one time, a release in 2023 or beyond seems more likely.
1) no target release date… only “when ready”
2) Mobile version 1.5 will come and go before 1.6.

One thing Barone did confirm about the future development of stardew valley is that update 1.5 will arrive on mobile devices before the release of update 1.6. Originally, patch 1.5 for stardew valley was released on consoles in early 2021. However, since then, those on mobile platforms have still been waiting for the new inclusions found in this update to come to mobile. And while Barone has yet to commit to a release window for this update, it appears that patch 1.5 coming to mobile is more of his focus at the moment compared to patch 1.6 being released.
