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


1.16 is an upcoming major update, with no set release date, which will make additions and revamp the Nether.[1][2] The theme is "Nether Update" and will add new biomes and mobs to the Nether. The Nether Update was announced at MINECON Live 2019. This update does not include the Mountains biome features announced during MINECON Live 2019.[3]

Combat changes

The combat system is planned to be reworked in a future update, keeping the cooldown but only allowing the player to attack when fully charged. It is not known yet when those changes will be made, as they are developed in parallel to other features and will make it into the game "when they're good enough". The update in which they are included will also not be a combat-themed update.[4]

Bedrock Edition


1.16.0 is an upcoming major update with planned release in Q3 2020,[5] which will revamp the Nether as part of the Nether Update, and will also bring further parity with Java and Education editions.
