Mojang has announced that the highly anticipated Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update will now release in two parts.
The first part is still due to release this summer, but the rest will launch in Holiday 2021.
Minecraft Caves & Cliffs Split Into Two
In Mojang's statement about the delay, they said that it's "the result of taking on our most ambitious update to date while our team also continues to navigate the challenges of working remotely."
"By giving our development team some extra time, they will be able to deliver an array of exciting features without compromising on quality, reliability, or functionality for players."
What's Included in 1.17 Part One
So that we know what to expect, Mojang has revealed that's still set to be included in Minecraft's Caves & Cliffs first part.
"The first part of the Caves & Cliffs Update will focus on some cute and fun mobs, cool items, and new blocks such as: Goat, Axolotl, Crystals + Spyglass + Geodes + Tinted Glass, Copper + Lightning Rod, Glow Squid + Glow Ink, Powder Snow, Lush Cave Blocks, Dripstone Cave Blocks, Deepslate + Ore Variants, Glow Lichen, and Multiplayer Sleeping Rule (Java only)."
Part One is still set to release this summer, but no final release date has been given.
The studio will be "doing some deep dives into the summer update over the coming weeks," so stay tuned.
