Minecraft’s Super Duper pack has been cancelled

Minecraft’s Super Duper pack is no longer happening. In a blog post today, Mojang announced that the team is ceasing development and it has been scrapped.

Mojang said that the new visual style “proved too technically demanding to implement as planned.” Further mentioned is that the studio isn’t “happy with how the pack performed across devices.” However, Mojang is “looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a new look.”

The brief post reads:

Some of you might remember us announcing the Super Duper Graphics Pack during E3 2017. 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.

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!
