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.

Java Edition

1.14.3

1.14.3 is an upcoming minor update with no set release date. It will make small changes to villagers and fix bugs leftover from 1.14.2.[1][2][3]

1.15

1.15 is an upcoming major update with no set release date.[4] The theme for this update is currently unknown and will be announced at MINECON Live 2019, but it will not be a cave update.[5] This update will also add functionality to smithing tables and fletching tables, though the exact usage of these blocks has not been announced.[6]

Further ahead

Some future plans beyond 1.14 include a revisit of gameplay mechanics (including combat),[7] a new "Super Fancy" graphics setting,[8] and new savanna and desert features (which were shown before MINECON Earth 2018), namely palm and baobab trees, ostriches, termites, and meerkats. The OpenGL version will also be updated to version 3.2 or higher.[1] It is not announced yet which major update will focus on which of these.

Bedrock Edition

1.12.0

1.12.0 is an upcoming major update for Bedrock Edition with an unknown release date. This update has no official theme but adds many new customizable features such as custom biomes, blocks and items.

1.13.0

1.13.0 is an upcoming major update for Bedrock Edition with an unknown release date. It may add foxes.[9][10]

4K Update

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.[11]

The update is delayed and as of April 2018 will not be coming out anytime soon due to 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 :)

PlayStation 4 inclusion

Bedrock Edition is planned to come to PlayStation 4 "at some point".[13]
