Xbox Game Studios’ Mojang has announced that they have canceled the Minecraft Super Duper Graphics Pack. In an update to the Mojang blog, the studio said the following:

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!


The Super Duper Graphics Pack was meant for all devices that supported the bedrock update, from Xbox One to Windows and even Nintendo Switch. It was meant to bring insane lighting and water effects, alongside realistic textures, to the blocky adventure phenomenon. It’s saddening that the pack has been canceled though.
