Since its release in 2017, Stardew Valley has been one of the most popular simulation games out there. This Harvest Moon-inspired farming sim has been enjoyed by millions of players across a multitude of platforms. With such popularity, some may wonder whether you can play Harvest Moon with gamers on different platforms. Here’s the answer to whether Stardew Valley is cross-platform.
How to Play Stardew Valley Cross-Platform
It may come as a surprise to learn this, but no, Stardew Valley is not a cross-platform game. While the game is playable across PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, among other platforms, there is no way to cross-play it with gamers on other systems. This is probably a major shock, but lead developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone explained why cross-play would not come to fruition on Twitter.
While ConcernedApe has mentioned that multiplayer is something he really wants to look into, the odds seem heavily stacked against this ever coming to fruition. Keep in mind, ConcernedApe’s tweet was written in 2018, so if there hasn’t been any movement on this front since, it seems likely that it won’t happen. This is disappointing to hear, but hopefully, the small chance of cross-play comes to fruition at some point.
