So when will Minecraft Caves and Cliffs come out?
Caves & Cliffs Update release date
Update 1.17 may be behind us, as Minecraft Caves and Cliffs will now be split into two separate updates in 2021.
The Minecraft Caves and Cliffs release date will now be split into two - with the first part releasing in the Summer, and the second dropping around the holiday season.
Fans were ready for another long wait after the Nether Update, but it looks like we may be reaching the light at the end of the tunnel!

Will the release date be the same in Java & Bedrock?
It should be! The Nether Update was rolled out across both versions of Minecraft at the same time.
That will continue for the Caves & Cliffs Update. So regardless of if you play on PC, Switch, or Xbox you will get it at the same time.
Update 1.17 content
So we know that caves and cliffs are the focus of the update, but what does that actually mean?
Firstly it means new biomes! There will be a few new places to explore, including Lush Caves.
Along with new biomes, the promise of added strategy to mining should make your diamond searches more interesting.
There are also new blocks coming to Minecraft, along with added biodiversity like a new tree, plants, and even some not-so-blocky blocks!
