Mojang revealed at MINECON Earth that Minecraft‘s Super Duper Graphics pack will not be releasing this year, as previously announced.
According to the developer, “there’s a lot of work to be done still,” so the decision has been made to push back its release to next year.
The Super Duper Graphics Pack was unveiled at E3 back in June for Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows 10, and includes dynamic shadows, lighting that streams through fog, movement in leaves and grass, new textures for mobs and villagers, directional lighting, edge highlighting, and more.
It was also announced that cross-platform multiplayer for Nintendo Switch has been pushed back to next year to ensure that the developer can “deliver the best experience possible.”
In other news, Mojang unveiled the latest major update for Minecraft at MINECON that will see the game’s oceans overhauled with the addition of dolphins, shipwrecks, and more.
