ConcernedApe is taking a break from Haunted Chocolatier’s development to create a new update for Stardew Valley.
Following the early announcement trailer for 2021, we haven’t seen much of Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone’s next game, Haunted Chocolatier. We’ve gotten a few small updates here and there about how development on the game is progressing, but that’s not surprising considering that Barone confirmed when it was announced that it would take “time”. However, the wait time may be a bit longer.
on Twitter, ConcernedApe has announced that production of the Haunted Chocolatier will be temporarily suspended. For spending some time in Stardew Valley and updating to version 1.6. ConcernedApe confirmed that this update will mainly focus on changes for modders, but will also include some new content.
ConcernedApe said “There will be an update for Stardew 1.6. Mostly changes for modders (makes modding easier and more powerful). But much less than 1.5, but also new game content. I’m taking it now for this work. Take a break at the Haunted Chocolatier and head back to HC.”
It’s unclear from the tweet what changes will be made to Stardew Valley to make mods easier, but considering how massive the scene is, it’s an interesting change. Also, we don’t currently have an update schedule, so it’s unclear when this will be released, but since Barone is working on the game, it may still be a while. After all, update 1.5 only made it to the mobile version of the game earlier this year.
It’s worth noting that Update 1.5 was absolutely massive for Stardew Valley, featuring new world areas, new farm features, and tons of other content. Barone has mentioned that this update will be a bit thinner on new content, which means it’s not too far off. This isn’t the first time Barone has confirmed that 1.6 exists. As he previously stated when the mobile version of 1.5 was released.
The same goes for Haunted Chocolatier. The game hasn’t been officially given a release date or time frame anyway, especially since Barone is taking a bit of a break, but if you were expecting something in 2023, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen now. .
