This page is about planned versions of all editions of Minecraft. These updates either have major sources to their existence or have received development versions.
Note that only editions with known planned updates are listed here; if no known planned updates exist the edition is left out.
1.14 is an upcoming major update with a possible release date of early 2019. The theme is "Village and Pillage" and will revamp villages and also add pandas, foxes, crossbows, bamboo and scaffolding.
Some future plans beyond 1.14 include a revisit of combat, a revisit of gameplay mechanics, a new 'Super Fancy' graphics setting and new savanna and desert features (which were shown before MINECON Earth 2018). It is not announced yet which major update will focus on which of these.
1.12.0 is an upcoming major update for Bedrock Edition with an unknown release date. It will update seagrass texture to match Java Edition's one. One bug fix is that ice will be able to be mined quickly when using an efficiency pickaxe.
The 4K Update is an upcoming aesthetic update for Bedrock Edition with no set release date. It will add a 4K HDR graphics option. The Super Duper Graphics Pack will be added to the marketplace at the same time.
The update is delayed and will not be coming out anytime soon due to some internal issues.
Minecraft developer here. The Graphics Team is still hard at work on this (it ended up being a ton more work than initially anticipated). The graphics part of our engine was quite honestly simply not built for this, and when we tried to put all the new features in piece by piece things went bad. Performance, even on the Xbox One X, was between bad and inconsistent during all the internal play sessions we had. It will come, but we don't have a date yet. The gameplay team has been hard at work on the Update Aquatic, while the rest of the Engine team has been working on the Switch release alongside fixing performance issues on Xbox One. Those fixes are much closer than Super Duper :)

- “Some notes: 1.10 will include shields and some village features as well as more behind the experimental toggle, but it is not the Village & Pillage update. We are planning for 1.11 to be the Village and Pillage update. 🙂” – @chupacaubrey, January 29, 2019

- “WHAT IS JAPPA DOING TO MY MINECRAFT? Changing the textures! Except for a few, like the Creeper. Across all versions? YEP, both on Java and Bedrock. You cannot escape my sweet, sweet textures. When? Soon! In the Beta Resource Pack, where all my beloved pixels live.” – @JasperBoerstra, November 10, 2017
