When asked if new games would be on the way, Barone replied “I’m actually working on a couple of new projects. One takes place in the world of Stardew Valley, but is not a farming game. The other, I’m not 100 percent sure about the world yet, but it will tie into Stardew Valley in some way.”
When the news began to spread across social media and into news stories like the one you are reading now, Barone added “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.”
The big takeaway from Barone’s response is that Stardew Valley will live on, but will expand beyond the farm. We can’t wait to see what’s in the pipeline, but until these projects are revealed, we have fields to tend to.
