Minecraft To Stay Blocky – Super Duper Graphics Plans Have Been Cancelled

Posted by at 10:10 am on August 13, 2019

Minecraft will be keeping its block-based look for the foreseeable future as plans to update its graphics are cancelled. Mojang  announced a plan at  E3 2017  to make the game look more realistic

In a statement Minecraft developer Mojang said it had ended development on what was known as the Super Duper graphics pack for the game.

The pack would have given the game realistic textures, lighting effects and all-round better graphics.

The pack has proved “too technically demanding” so has been ditched.

In the same statement the firm said:

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.

Minecraft is one of the most popular and commercially successful games in history. The original PC version of the game recently passed 30 million unit sales. On all platforms the game has officially sold 176 million copies worldwide and has 200 million registered users in its free Chinese release as the sandbox title.
