Things took a rather unfortunate turn of events for Minecraft fans. During the latest Ask Mojang video, it was announced that a few new additions for the Minecraft 1.19 Wild Update have been cancelled. While others have been modified or delayed due to certain issues that came up during development.
Fireflies and improved Birch Forests are among the 1.19 Wild update additions that got cancelled
The first major talking point is that Fireflies have been removed from the list of features coming to the game. This is because, in real life, most fireflies are poisonous to frogs and toads, and to preserve the sense of realism, they aren’t being added. This disappointed the community, who were excited about seeing a new source of ambient light in the game that could fly around and they had a bunch of really creative ideas. Nevertheless, the reason is quite valid.
Moving on, the changes to the Birch Forests are also pretty much cancelled. This is because when the improvements were originally announced, they were just a concept and now, development on them has been stopped.
Additionally, due to issues with touch screens, Bundles won’t be coming to the 1.19 Update right upon its release. Also, Mud won’t exactly function the way it’s supposed to on Bedrock, till some issues are fixed.
These were the major points in the video and for some other information that wasn’t as important, players can watch the whole video. We’re probably getting quite close to the release of the Wild Update, which was showcased during Minecraft’s live event in 2021. We don’t have a release date yet but we should hear something about its release soon.
