Minecraft’s 4K Update Has Been Officially Cancelled

Super Duper Pack for Minecraft is no more

By Grayshadow, Posted 12 Aug 2019

2 years ago, Mojan promised a new update called the Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft that would launch in Fall 2017. You can probably guess fans asked where the update was. Well, it's been canceled.


Mojang made the announcement official on their website

Some of you might remember us announcing the Super Duper Graphics Pack during E3 2017. Super Duper was an ambitious initiative that brought a new look to Minecraft but, unfortunately, the pack proved too technically demanding to implement as planned.

We realise this is disappointing to some of you – there was a lot of enthusiasm for Super Duper from inside and outside the studio – but unfortunately, we aren’t happy with how the pack performed across devices. For this reason, we're stopping development on the pack, and looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a new look.

Minecraft is available on a wide range of platforms, and we’re constantly trying to make the most of the technical architecture of each one. We’ll be able to share more on that subject very soon.

Thanks for your patience, and sorry for not following through on our plans!

This news is disappointing but considering the modding community has been updating the game with insane texture packs this won't annoy fans on the PC as much as consoles.
