Valheim developer Iron Gate Studio, has provided an update on the team’s delivery of four updates this year, which has been delayed. The team is focusing on technical issues which “needed to be fixed urgently,” forcing the delay of content.
The news came on an update on Valheim’s Steam store page, where the team explained the upcoming Hearth & Home expansion has been pushed to Q3 2021. The original roadmap has also been temporarily removed so Iron Gate can make changes. Whenever this roadmap makes an appearance again, it will for sure be smaller than the one.
The studio stated it wasn’t prepared for how popular Valheim would become. The massive, and growing, playerbase only highlighted problems Iron Gate needed to address to make the “experience as stable as possible.” This pushed all content to the wayside, as they are more concerned playable game.
After Hearth & Home releases, Iron Gate will then set its sights on the large Mistlands update before taking on smaller Valheim patches.
For now, the studio provided a preview of what’s heading to the game when Hearth & Home drops (between July and September). This includes new building pieces, cooking stations like spice racks, a new food system, and plantable crops like onions.
