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

1.13

1.13 is an upcoming major update with no set release date. It will focus mainly on bug fixes, technical features, and retexturing.[1]

Bedrock Edition

Better Together Update

The Better Together update provides cross-platform compatibility. In Pocket Edition, it will be released as 1.2.[2] The release will come before the end of the summer,[3] which is in September 2017.

4K Update

The 4K Update[conjectural] is an upcoming update for Bedrock Edition set to be released in late 2017. It will add the Super Duper Graphics pack and a 4K HDR graphics option.[4]

Console Edition

Wii U Patch 27/NS Patch 7

An upcoming update for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch Editions will add a save transfer from Wii U to Nintendo Switch.[5] As one of the last updates to the Nintendo Switch Edition, it will be released this summer before the Better Together Update.

Better Together Update

The Better Together Update will also be released on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch before the end of the summer. It is technically not a version of the Console Edition at all, because it is actually a new port of Bedrock. It is a separate title which will be a free digital download for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch owners. However, future Console Edition updates will no longer come to the Xbox One or Nintendo Switch after the Better Together Update is released. People who own the disc version of the Xbox One Edition will only be able to upgrade for a limited time after the release of the Better Together Update. To be eligible, they must have bought DLC from the store, or play the game for at least 5 hours this year before the Better Together Update is released - otherwise they will not be able to get the new version for free and will have to buy it at full price.[6]
