Caves and Cliffs Update - Split into Two parts

Update 1.17 will be the first release of the Caves & Cliffs update coming this summer, which will be followed by Update 1.18 coming this winter. The decision behind making the update into two parts has three main reasons: Ensuring Quality, Technical Challenges, and Team Health.

Providing quality content and a problem-free update is ideal. Part of ensuring the quality of the Caves and Cliffs update is splitting the update into two parts. Some features will be released with the first part in the summer, with more complex features releasing later in the year during the winter update.

The technical challenges involved with the Caves and Cliffs update are tricky. Adding massive mountains, epic caves, and changing the height of the world does not come easy. The developers look to give the world generation the time it deserves to deliver a delightful feature for all to enjoy.

  • Part 1: The first part will have a main focus on releasing a majority of the features expected to be seen with the Caves and Cliffs update. The summer update adds geodes, copper, along with new blocks and mobs.
  • Part 2: The Winter Update will focus on the technical aspects of World generation. Include expanded caves, increased world height and depth limit, new mountain generation, and new biomes.

While we will see a lot of new additions and changes to Minecraft, the developers at Mojang know it is super important for users to be able to update and use their old worlds. You will be able to update your old worlds to Caves and cliffs in the summer and in the winter, without problems. You will be able to continue to play your old worlds for many years to come!
