Animal Crossing: New Horizons is an amazing game, but if you’re still playing it in 2061 (38 years from now), you’re going to run into some issues…
A user on the Animal Crossing subreddit has discovered you can’t play New Horizons after this date. Instead, you’ll apparently receive a message – asking you to restart after setting a date between the years 2000 and 2060.
“Please close the game from the HOME Menu and restart after setting a date between 1/1/2000 and 31/12/2060.”
Again, all you have to do is rewind to continue enjoying island life, so there’s no need to panic. And given how far away this actual date is, this shouldn’t really be a concern.
Animal Crossing has been around for over 20 years now and has already had five major entries, so if it’s still a thing in 2061, we’re sure the latest and greatest version will be what everyone is playing by then.
