Mojang has announced the next update naming it Minecraft Trails and Tales. The developers revealed as much as they needed to last year in December. As per the reveals, a lot of new features are going to be added to the game.

With every major update, Mojang looks to expand the ever-expanding world of Minecraft. Be it adding new mobs, passive and aggressive, new biome or blocks, something new is always added. Here is what we all know regarding the upcoming 1.20 update of Minecraft.

Minecraft Trails and Tales update release date

Adding catchy nomenclature to Minecraft updates was never the original idea. Ever since the game was officially released back on November 18, 2011, there have been many an update. However, adding names started with 1.4.2 on October 25, 2012.

Naming can be one thing, but it has always been a ritual to never announce the release date of upcoming major updates by Mojang. Interpolation can still be done. With recent patterns, Mojang has been releasing major updates every six months. Since the last update came last year’s December, we can easily say that the Minecraft Trails and Tales update is slated to release in June 2023.
