Stardew Valley no longer published by Chucklefish

Eric Barone (aka Concerned Ape) posted a clarification on the relationship between Chucklefish and Stardew Valley back in September. This happened amid allegations that Chucklefish was engaging in abusive labor practices.

“Throughout the 4.5 years of development, I was the only person to work on Stardew Valley. Neither Chucklefish nor any contributors working with Chucklefish were involved in creating the game, in any capacity.”

“For the multiplayer update, which came out on PC 2.5 years after the game first launched, a Chucklefish employee did create the multiplayer net-code, but that was the only case where Chucklefish was directly involved in development of the game.”

“Beyond that, Chucklefish has served only as publisher, which means that they handled the business and marketing side of things, as well as contracting the localizations, console & mobile ports to 3rd-party companies. Since December of last year, I’ve moved to self-publishing on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox, and PSVita… Chucklefish is no longer publishing the game on those platforms.”

– Eric Barone (Concerned Ape)

As part of that announcement, he also said that Chucklefish would no longer be publishing the game on Nintendo Switch. It is now official, when you boot up Stardew Vally on your Switch you no longer see the Chucklefish Logo.

“Just a heads up everyone, starting today I’ll begin self-publishing Stardew Valley on the Nintendo Switch. That means I will now have full responsibility for any and all matters concerning Stardew Valley on the Switch, so if you have any comments or inquiries about the Switch version please send them directly to me.”

– Eric Barone (Concerned Ape)

As of this writing when you boot the game, it still says published by Chucklefish and developed by Concerned Ape.
