SimGuruFrost has confirmed that a January patch will be released this month, and although details of the patch were not released, it’s clear that the patch will prepare players for the upcoming Tiny Living Stuff Pack. The Tiny Living Stuff Pack is set to release January 21st on PC/Mac, so a January 16th patch is very likely based on past trends.
There will be a January patch. Can't get into specifics right now.
