Minecraft Dev Cancels Update That Adds New Graphics

Minecraft Super Duper Graphics Pack Officially Canceled By Mojang Because It Is Too Technically Demanding

The major graphics overhaul for Minecraft that was announced back in 2017 at E3 is officially canceled, according to a statement released by Mojang.

It'd be an absolute shock if a group of intrepid 3rd-party developers didn't take it upon themselves to continue to create a new Super Duper Graphics Pack after Minecraft's in-house team leaves the pieces floating in the wind. Posting on the Minecraft blog, Microsoft has indicated that the update is "too technically demanding to implement as planned" and has been canceled.

Fans of the series will need to keep their eyes peeled to see when and if Mojang will end up producing a different version of the Super Duper Graphics Pack or if the entire effort will end up being scrapped.

"For this reason, we're stopping development on the pack, and looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a newer look", the official statement read.

The Indian cricket team had last toured Pakistan in 2007, and after that, no team across any sport has toured Pakistan. India's two-day match against Pakistan is scheduled to be played in the Pakistani capital from September 14.

Mojang's statement went on to say that the studio wasn't happy with how the update was performing across the different platforms Minecraft on which is now available, which range from Xbox One X to smartphones.

It is likely that the cross-platform nature of Minecraft proved to be something of a stumbling block when it came to delivering the Super Duper Graphics Pack; Microsoft hints at this by saying that it wasn't "happy with how the pack performed across devices".

Originally, the Super Duper Graphics Pack was to provide Minecraft players will enhanced visuals. We are not sure how much of the old gameplay will also be included. It was meant to bring insane lighting and water effects, alongside realistic textures, to the blocky adventure phenomenon.
