Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.2.1 Update Patch Notes

In the past, the official patch notes were pretty detailed, giving plenty of information on the latest changes to the game. Unfortunately, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 1.2.1 update patch notes buck that trend, offering an unspecific explanation of what the new update for May 22, 2020 actually does.

General updates

  • Addressed issues to further ensure an enjoyable gaming experience.

Above you can read the latest changes to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. What exactly “Addressed issues to further ensure an enjoyable gaming experience.” means isn’t made clear, but it’s possible that the update fixes the latest duplication exploit. We await further confirmation from players for this one.

The previous duplication glitch was handled in the same manner, without explicit confirmation that it was patched, so this could be a similar situation.

If you were expecting a big content drop ahead of the weekend, perhaps to make up for the lackluster International Museum Day event, I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed. Here’s hoping the next update has something more substantial!

The timeframe for the next Animal Crossing: New Horizons update, 1.2.2, isn’t yet known, but we’ll be sure to get you the details as soon as they are available.
