Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition – Update 12 Still In Development, According To Devs

Even though it’s been awhile since we last heard news about the progress of ‘Update 12’ for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which was said to feature a new tutorial world and jungle environments, developers are still hard at work trying to push it out the door.

The team behind the big hit, which has sold over seven million copies to date since it has been released last year on Xbox Live Arcade and very recently around the world via a physical copy, has recently revealed why the long awaited update hasn’t been released yet.

According to a recent tweet from the twitter account of 4J Studios, update 12 is still in development due to several architecture changes that are necessary for this update to go live, which deals with changing some of the way the code works underneath the game.

    Minecraft won’t run on my pc yet somehow I can run battlefield 3 at 120 fps. -____-

    • Mitch

      What kinda problems do you have?

      • Cole.

        No idea. I run it at 300 fps with a 128×128 texture pack at 200 fps and then it randomly freezes my entire computer. No fixes anywhere!

        • DanDustEmOff

          Have you tried it without the texture pack?

          • Cole.

            yes, also with a 60 fps monitor, run as admin, 120hz monitor, high priority, reinstall, reinstall java. No idea how to fix it!

            • DanDustEmOff

              Are you running any other mods other than the texture pack?

            • James Mulhall

              I think I know what the problem is. I’m guessing you have a 64bit version of Windows 7? The freezing could be caused by a 32bit version of Java. A friend of mine had the same problem and when he installed the 64bit version it worked perfectly.

              It would tell him he was running the wrong Java in the graphics setting menu. I would have thought he would have stumbled across that one.

              I will try that EDIT: running 64bit, I logged a support ticket with my evga.

            • Jack Greiner

              I had an old EVGA. It has an issue with crashing and such. The only way to fix it is by updating to a newer OS. that fixed my problem

      Minecraft is a MASSIVE CPU guzzler. Despite its graphics having an infinite world and such causes PC’s to heat up fast. My current PC gets to hot after playing abit of Minecraft and shuts itself down. Im getting a new stronger PC to fix the issue lol.

    • Runs fine on 8GB of RAM and a AMD A6-3650 Quad-Core APU.

  • Jarod

    I don’t play minecraft anymore, and I’m deleting my YouTube channel. It’s boring now, waiting 3 or 4 months for a simple update. If it takes so long, it better be mind blowing. Goodbye mincraft.
