However, a Chucklefish representative confirmed to PC Gamer that the Switch version will not launch with multiplayer this summer. Instead, multiplayer will be added at a later date via an update that will be available first on PC.
The game was originally coming to Wii U, but development was cancelled late last year in favor of a Switch version.
Stardew Valley is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
