Stardew Valley’s long-awaited multiplayer patch should be delivered in about a month.
Creator Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone announced the news via a Tweet yesterday, saying that so long as “all goes well” we should be sharing the chores of a farming life within a month. The team is currently “still making good progress on fixing bugs.”

This news applies specifically to the PC, Mac and Linux versions of the game, but we should expect the update to make its way to the console versions given a bit more time.
It’s also likely that the version to arrive in around a month will be in public beta rather than a full release, with a testing phase to ensure as many issues as possible are ironed out before the full release.
