Stardew Valley’s creator “Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone has teased that that new projects are on its way, but the regular free content will keep coming for Stardew Valley.
“Thanks everyone for the Stardew Valley 4-year anniversary wishes,” Barone tweets. “It’s been a pleasure, and I look forward to another great year! Now that 1.4 is out on all intended platforms, I’d like to announce that there will be another free content update (1.5)…it’s currently in the works!”
I see this is blowing up and there are articles coming out, etc…. all I ask is please don't get too hyped at this stage. I want to avoid too much hype or speculation. I'd like to just make whatever game comes naturally to me without too much pressure or expectation.

“Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game primarily inspired by the Harvest Moon video game series. At the start of the game, the player creates their character, who becomes the recipient of a plot of land including a small house once owned by his or her grandfather in a small town called Pelican Town.
The player manages their character’s time and energy levels as they clear land, plant and tend crops, raise livestock, craft goods, mine for ores, and engage in social activities, including romances leading towards marriage, with the various residents of the small town, all while earning in-game money to expand their farm. The game is open-ended, allowing the player to take on activities as they see fit. A four-player cooperative multiplayer mode was added in 2018.
Stardew Valley was heavily inspired by the Harvest Moon video game series, with additions by Stardew Valley’s sole designer, Eric Barone, to address some of the shortcomings of these games while using the opportunity as an exercise to improve his own programming and game design skills.”
Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone has not revealed the kind of content fans can expect, but considering how recent updates has received teasers, it’s very likely that more information will be revealed in small portions. Previous updates added new cosmetic items, from clothing to new building, even a multiplayer mode was added.
