Weren't they making a version of Minecraft for the Hololens? Speaking of which whatever happened to the Hololens? I haven't heard anything about it in ages...

The Windows 10 version has a virtual reality mode that works on Oculus.

HoloLens is still coming but dev kits just went out last year i think. It's definitely a 2018 release.

And in other news... Water is wet. Minecraft has been in active development since it's inception. There being "Future work" is entirely expected.

I'm still surprised they're allowing Minecraft on competing platforms, but I suppose they gotta make that $2.5 billion somehow lol

He should totally toss in shaderpacks for the console version of MC. The game looks so much more alive with the different choices of shader packs out there. Pretty sure Scorpio and Pro can handle those.

I know this is unrealistic, but what if they made a Minecraft game with a different style? It'd be cool to see a minecraft-like game with a different style in the future

You mean like a texture pack?

I think he means like less of the blocky/lego-ish look.

I don't know...the aesthetic plays a huge part in what makes it Minecraft.
