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

About a month or so ago I commented on a Minecraft post on FB asking if there was any new info on this 4K pack, I got 30+ comments talking s*** to me saying who needs 4K in Minecraft, calling me names, and bullying. I hate social media sometimes....

Not surprised this has been cancelled. My son and I was really looking forward to it we play co-op a lot.

I understand that they was going to do more than just res bump (?), but honestly... how hard could it be to make minecraft graphics in 4k lol?

I'm gonna guess harder than you think? Of course, it's all based on an indie developers core work. They'd probably need to rewrite the whole thing. Obviously consoles lack the power to push through bottlenecks that PCs have, nor the mod communities.

I have no idea how to make a game. But if Microsoft can’t make this 4K in a timely fashion then nobody can.

Too many variables, I’m assuming...if ms chose to only make it for Xbox and pc there would be mass hysteria. But it the could stager the reals to each platform and device, people with still cry but would be a tad bit accepting if it meant everyone would eventually get it but on reality they’d forget and MS cancel it later

I thought the Pack/4K update was only for One X and PC?

I don't even know why they would bother with a PC release. The mod community has raytracing and endless visual mods for it already.

I mean..

These mods, are they the windows 10 version or for the java variant, I don’t have it on my pc but and don’t have a clue on how mods work or where to go about getting them for Minecraft, are they on their own Minecraft store?
