After nearly a year of relative silence, Animal Crossing: New Horizons gained some steam with its major Ver. 2.0 update, which was announced via an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct on October 15th, 2021 at 7. a.m. PT. Needless to say, it was great to check in on Isabelle and Tom Nook again to see what’s happening with our island getaways.

During this Direct, it was announced that the Ver. 2.0 update would be the final free update for the game.


Will there be an Animal Crossing Direct?


No further Animal Crossing Directs have been announced. The last one to air was the October 15th, 2021 Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct.
