Animal Crossing: New Horizons is an amazing game, but if you still play it in 2061 (38 years from now), you will run into problems…

A user from the Animal Crossing subreddit discovered that you can no longer play New Horizons after this date. Instead, you’ll apparently get a message – asking you to reboot 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 12/31/2060.”

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 that actual date is, that shouldn’t really be a problem.

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 the one everyone will be playing by then.
