Last year, we reported on the Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft which was expected to launch for all platforms including the Nintendo Switch.
After months of relative silence, we finally have confirmation from Mojang that the project has unfortunately been cancelled. In a update shared on the official Minecraft website, the team explained that this was due to difficulties getting the pack to perform properly across the game’s many platforms.
You can check out the full explanation for yourself below:
We realise this is disappointing to some of you – there was a lot of enthusiasm for Super Duper from inside and outside the studio – but unfortunately, we aren’t happy with how the pack performed across devices. For this reason, we’re stopping development on the pack, and looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a new look.
Minecraft is available on a wide range of platforms, and we’re constantly trying to make the most of the technical architecture of each one. We’ll be able to share more on that subject very soon. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for not following through on our plans!
