At the end of last year, Stardew Valley's developer ConcernedApe told console players there was a chance version 1.5 might be released by the "end" of January but didn't want to make any guarantees.

So, what's the latest? The console version of this update has now been submitted for certification and while there are still no promises, ConcernedApe feels his original estimate of late this month or early on in February is still likely to come true.

If you've not been keeping up with our Stardew Valley updates, version 1.5 is already out on PC. It contains a new beach farm, advanced game options and more. You can see the changelog in our previous post, but be warned - it may contain spoilers.
