Chucklefish details the submission process for Stardew Valley

Crossing your fingers and toes that Stardew Valley release information is coming soon? Wondering what's keeping the game back? One of the devs at Chucklefish has taken to Reddit to explain what's currently going on with the game in great detail.

Realistically we're trying to get it to everyone as soon as we can, there are a few things involved in that process. First the game has to pass through lot check, a process that is out of our hands and essentially takes as long as it takes. Second, we have to ensure we get a release slot agreement from all parties involved.

There are two ways to do this. The normal way is to decide on the release slot first, way in advance (ideally a date you won't possibly miss, so you can ensure it happens.) Of course once you're done with bug fixing, lot check, updates, etc etc you pretty much have to stick to that date, even if you finish early. That could just result in the game sitting unreleased whilst completely checked and finished for some time.

The other way is to get all that stuff done first, then announce the next available release window. To ensure we get it out as quickly as is feasible. We opted for that option, and in the mean time I'm sharing all the info I get and am allowed to share.
So far lotcheck is looking really good, nothing has come up that needs fixing. Does that mean it absolutely won't? No, because otherwise we'd be picking a release window already. But it's a very good sign and that's all I was trying to convey to people, as part of my promise to keep everyone up to date.

In terms of release window, there are so many people involved in that decision that I couldn't really say. As soon as I have that information though, you guys will know.
