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 optimisation.[1][2]

1.14

1.14 is an upcoming major update planned to be released in Q2 2018, and after the release of 1.13. Unlike the technical update of 1.13, 1.14 will focus on new features once again.[3]

This version will be the Java Edition's implementation of the Update Aquatic, which will focus on water and ocean-related content, as Jens Bergensten revealed in the MineCon Earth livestream on November 18, 2017. Shown in a short clip are underwater plants, coral blocks and fish mobs.[4] Other additions will be the winning MineCon mob, Mob B; tridents; dolphins; shipwrecks; and icebergs.[5]

Texture Update

The Texture Update is an upcoming major change to textures in Minecraft. It will change most textures in Minecraft except for iconic textures such as the Creeper.[6] Old textures will be a separate download when the new default pack officially releases.

Bedrock Edition

Nintendo Switch release

The Nintendo Switch release of the Bedrock Edition was delayed past the release of the Better Together Update to 2018.[7] This will coincide with the discontinuation of the Nintendo Switch Edition of the Legacy Console Edition. If another Bedrock Edition update is released before then, it is possible that the Nintendo Switch release will be on a version past Bedrock Edition 1.2.

1.3

1.3 is an upcoming major update with no set release date. The update will make improvements to performance based on Java Edition[8] and the experimental Plutonium Mode.[9]

4K Update

The 4K Update is an upcoming update for Bedrock Edition set to be released in 2018.[10] It will add a 4K HDR graphics option. The Super Duper Graphics Pack will be added to the marketplace at the same time.[11]

Update Aquatic

The Update Aquatic is an upcoming update for Bedrock Edition. It is set to be released in Q2 2018 for both Java Edition and Bedrock Edition.[12]

Texture Update

The Texture Update is an upcoming major change to textures in Minecraft. It will change most textures in both Java and Bedrock except for iconic textures such as the Creeper. Old textures will be a separate download when the new default pack officially releases.
