Stardew Valley may finally be at an end after 8 amazing years

Stardew Valley may finally be at an end after 8 amazing years

The possibility was brought up in a new interview

All good things must come to an end eventually, and so it is that the sun is finally setting on Stardew Valley after nearly a decade of fun on the farm.

A new interview from Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone has revealed that we might be seeing the tail end of the popular farming sim's development.

In a recent interview with PCGamer, Barone not only revealed the possible future of the title, but also discussed exactly why the latest update for Stardew Valley was so heavily focused on the modding community and making sure that mods actually work on the new version of the game.

"Nothing is planned but I'm not going to say the book is closed. I don't make big plans. I like to just see what happens. I don't want to be locked down. I don't know how I'll be feeling. Once 1.6 is squared away, I will try to take a break. I want to turn my attention towards Haunted Chocolatier [the new game from the Stardew Valley developer]. I'm not going to say [there's] no chance for more updates, that would be foolish," Barone said in the interview when asked about future updates for the title.

Barone also spoke about why one of the core goals of 1.6 was to ensure that Stardew Valley's modding scene would be able to make stuff that was actually compatible with the game itself.

"The lore of the world and characters has taken on a life of its own beyond what I thought possible. I am open to mods and I am fine with anyone making any mods they want. Even adjusting and adding to the story: it's not canon. Only the vanilla game is canonical. I don't mind if people want to add their own fan stories to the game, as long as its clear its not canon," Barone said, making sure people know that anything that he didn't create isn't an official aspect of the game.
