Now that the Minecraft 1.18 update has been released, the excitement and buzz for the Minecraft 1.19 update is skyrocketing. And of course, considering the success of all the previous updates and their appreciation by the audience, the anticipation is indeed for all the right reasons.
What Are the New Updates?
The Minecraft 1.19 update is not just about new and revamped biomes. What we are getting is a whole package deal. There are going to be new blocks, new structures, most probably a new weather system, and, yes, undoubtedly various new mobs in Minecraft 1.19.
All these features kind of overshadow the grand Minecraft 1.18 update, making it look much smaller in comparison. Another interesting thing is the ever-increasing excitement of the player choice mob Allay and the new boss Warden.
With all these new features to look forward to, the big question that everyone needs an answer to is when exactly is the wild update releasing? Well, the wait is over, just read on and get all your answers.
What Is the Release Date of Minecraft 1.19: The Wild Update?
We are in the mid of January, and still, we have no official announcement about the release date of the Minecraft 1.19 update. But, do not be disheartened. If we look back on the historical release timeline of Minecraft, we may get a hint.
Most major updates come out with a gap of 6 months. So considering that, our wait will most probably end by the June of 2022. June 2022 is the expected release time for the new latest Minecraft 1.19 update.
Although June is a great guess, we should not firmly bet on June if we look at all the factors.
All thanks to multiple leaks from famous and popular Minecraft modders and, not to forget, the early availability of the 1.19 Bedrock beta, we can even get the update in April. April or June, it is still a three or four months-long wait, and an official statement will put all the doubts to rest soon, hopefully.
Is the Minecraft 1.19 Wild Update Divided Into Two Parts?
Considering the tweet posted by the popular modder Hamish, if we believe it, Minecraft developer Mojang might classify the update into two distinct parts: most probably Caves and Cliffs updates.
The wild update is going to revamp almost the entire in-game structure and all biomes of Minecraft, so two different updates will make it a tad bit easier to roll out and apply all the changes without much hassle. But, do not forget, just like there is no confirmation about the release date, two-part updates are not confirmed news either.
Are Minecraft Java and Bedrock Going to Get 1.19 Update at the Same Time?
With the efforts to improve the parity between Minecraft Java and Bedrock editions, Mojang now releases all its major updates precisely at the same time, simultaneously for both. Variation can be seen in beta updates and snapshot release dates, though.
However, both editions of the sandbox game are going to get their Minecraft 1.19 Wild Update on the very same date and at the same time. When exactly the updates will be released is still an unanswered question but hopefully, we will know for sure pretty soon.
For now, we should wait for an official announcement and confirmation. We all are voting for an early release date is April 2022; hopefully, it will be the month of release. The wait is quite intense and challenging for the fans with all the exciting new features.
As soon as we get an update about the release date, you will be the first to know. Fingers crossed, for now, hoping for a piece of confirmed news soon!
