Geez, how could they let something like that happen? If they can't release a graphics mod for a very popular game, I seriously have even more doubts about how they handle their studios going forward.
Woah, I’m shocked that you have big doubts about Microsoft studios. Lord knows no one else ever cancels anything.
Personally I’m not surprised it was canceled, it was supposed to release two years ago and they were very silent in 2018 about it. From the sound of things, it was just too much work to get it running at an acceptable level across all the different platforms Minecraft is on. I’d rather them put out an update that performs well rather than something that is shit, kind of like the mercy killing of Scalebound.
Could also mean they have a sequel coming and are focusing on that instead of giving the old game such a massive update. Of course, Dungeons is also coming, my kids are more excited about that than anything I’ve ever seen them get excited about outside of maybe Luigi’s Mansion 2.
Point being, they have their plate full. If Windows and consoles were all they needed to worry about, I’m sure the update would have been out long ago. But they have different versions on Mac, which iirc used the Java version? Plus handhelds. Plus mobile. Must be insane amounts of work.
