Hey there! Information about the next Stardew Valley update comes out slow and steady before it pops up in everyone's Steam/GOG accounts. In this thread, I've compiled links to the information we have so far and what you might expect in the coming months. This thread may have 1.5 spoilers, so read at your own risk!

1.5 is the next version of Stardew Valley to come out, which will have bug fixes, adjustments, and gameplay additions. Big updates are typically indicated by a whole number, so we should expect 1.5 to be a bigger update. However, each update varies in the amount of content; for example, 1.3 added multiplayer and a few mid to late game changes, while 1.4 added a ton of quality of life changes and random additions from early to late game, including more story progression and a new farm map.

Confirmed Information

What to expect
  • ConcernedApe typically doesn't give an estimated time for the update so it's something that doesn't affect development process. His last post about development progress is that it's going smoothly and in the "nose to the grindstone" phase (in the Twitter post regarding Willy's house).​
  • The update will come out on PC versions of the game first, but unless there are massive technical changes (such as multiplayer) you should expect every other version of the game to receive the same updates. ConcernedApe tries to release console versions at the same time as each other, but it isn't a guarantee. Mobile should still get 1.5 even if multiplayer is unlikely.​
