After four years of the release of Stardew Valley, the game’s creator, Eric Barone, is still hard at work. Barone has now announced that the farming sim will receive yet another expansion, adding new content and tweaking gameplay issues. Stardew Valley 1.5 will provide players with this new content in a free update.
Barone made the announcement of version 1.5 of Stardew Valley in celebration of the game’s fourth birthday. “Now that 1.4 is out on all intended platforms,” he said, “I’d like to announce that there will be another free content update (1.5).”
Thanks everyone for the Stardew Valley 4-year anniversary wishes. 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!

The details of this update are not yet known and Baron has not mentioned what new content will be added to the game, and it’s also unclear when the version 1.5 Stardew Valley update will be ready to download.
Barone has stated that, in addition to the 1.5 Stardew Valley update, he’s also working on two other projects. One of these games is set within the Stardew Valley universe, but is not another farming game. And the other game, Barone hints “will tie into Stardew Valley in some way.”
I'm not setting out to make the next indie smash hit, I just want to make another game that I enjoy and am happy with. And to share some of my art & ideas with the world. If it becomes popular, I will be happy, but it's not my focus
