Mojang cancels Minecraft's Super Duper Graphics Pack.

Microsoft were riding high on the build up to the Xbox One X, promising native 4K graphics with games like Forza Motorsport 7 leading the charge as the rest of the then tiny Microsoft Studios went back and updated the company's recent back catalogue with improved graphics.
"Unfortunately", Mojang says in the official announcement, "we aren't happy with how the pack performed across devices".
We've seen this happen many, many times over the years: Developers show impressive trailers with wonderful graphic fidelity at E3, but the final product that ships a couple of months or years later looks nothing like what we saw in early teasers. According to a Minecraft representative, "the pack proved too technically demanding to implement as planned".

Nora's family said they were convinced she had been abducted but the Malaysian police have said there were no signs of foul play. It comes after the parents of the missing teen offered a £10,000 reward for information that could lead to her safe return.
Mojang apologised for not delivering on its promised update and said that it will look for other ways to deliver Minecraft with a new look.
It was E3 in 2017 when Mojang announced that they were going to take the bold, nay daring, step of making Minecraft look good. Minecraft runs on a huge number of devices, but you don't typically develop an expansion like this without targets in mind, because (presumably) you'll be testing the updates on a variety of systems as you work through them. Mojang and Microsoft jointly declared that Minecraft has sold 176 million copies as of May 2019. It was originally advertised for Xbox One and PC, with no mention of Sony. The ambitious plan was to make a downloadable add-on that all but did away with the basic, blocky look of the massively popular game. Otherwise, Mojang's graphics team has just spent two years of work on a major engine rewrite, only to see their efforts basically flushed down the drain.
