What Time Will Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Update Part 1 Go Live?

We know that Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Part 1 is due to launch on June 8, for all regions, on all platforms.

What we don't know exactly, at least at the time of this writing, is what time the update will go live in each region.

Now, it could be that the update will go live at 12 AM on June 8th in each region, as that time rolls around, or it may come out at an unspecified time in all regions at precisely the same time.

However, following the trend set by other Minecraft update and the 1.17 pre-releases, we expect Minecraft's Caves & Cliffs update to go live at around 12pm ET/5pm BST on June 8.

We know less about Part 2, as it is obviously a lot further out. Mojang will confirm that release date when we get a little bit closer, but it is expected to launch sometime during the holiday season in 2021.

That could mean a release anywhere from October to December, but it is probably best to split the difference and expect Part 2 to launch somewhere in mid-November.

We will update this page with the release date for Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Part 2 as soon as we hear of official confirmation from developer Mojang!
