Minecraft ‘Super Duper’ Graphics Pack Cancelled

by Liana Ruppert

The Minecraft Super Duper graphics pack has been something that a lot of players have been quite excited about for a while now and while the team behind the blocky title have been hard at work on making this happen, it looks like it just wasn’t meant to be. The Minecraft Super Duper graphics pack has officially been canceled. 

The team behind the popular game took to the title’s official website to deliver the bad news following its exciting E3 2017 reveal. According to the most recent blog post, “Super Duper was an ambitious initiative that brought a new look to Minecraft but, unfortunately, the pack proved too technically demanding to implement as planned.

“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.”

The game as-is is still widely accessible with more updates along the way, unfortunately, those plans will no longer include the Minecraft Super Duper graphics pack.
