Minecraft on Xbox Series X and S continues to be disappointing

The Xbox Series X|S consoles have been out in the wild for months now, and Minecraft continues to be an unfortunate disappointment on next-gen hardware. With a lack of communication from Mojang Studios, why shouldn't players be frustrated with a lackluster experience?

Mojang have have 600 employees and yet they’re still slow as molasses. Where’s next gen graphics and framerate updates?

That was supposed to happen on last gen, but they cancelled the update. They've worked on race tracing after that and taken their time. Seeing as they're still working on the next major update, which they've already split into 2 releases instead of 1, I say they won't be working on a current gen graphical upgrade til at least next year. Which judging by how slow they work will probably won't even be considered maybe for longer

Sorry to be that guy, but how can you have "next-gen" graphics on Minecraft? I get they are working on RT, but there is only so much you can do with squares.

Have you seen the Super Duper Graphics Pack or Minecraft with RTX?

You could also have better textures, enhanced weather effects, animated trees and foliage, wind system, fog, you name it. There’s plenty of things that could be done.

Oh i get you can have weather effects and animated trees etc, but they are not "next-gen" graphics, they are physics systems.

R&C, returnal etc i would class as next-gen graphics wise, not minecraft.

The only thing Series/PS5 will have over any other version is Raytracing, everything else will be available on vanilla platforms.

(PS - the "super duper graphics pack") was slated for last-gen, not next-gen.

Needs at least to put the 120hz frame rate on next gen.

considering how popular it still is, i dont quite understand how they're not delivering.
i mean .. if my game was popular as hell, id be making sure its gonna stay that way with new things

I enjoy just building randon castles or houses etc in minecraft, so id love there to be some more realistic blocks, maybe a block so walls dont need to be as thick or an proper roofing block so a roof doesnt look like a flight of stairs...

Hopefully on the PSVR they do a graphic update similar to what No mans sky dev team did for the PS5

As long as people are still being born, people will still be playing minecraft.

Lol I know I feel like Minecraft is the perfect game to start gaming on it’s simple but has its complexity as well
