Developer Mojang has decided to cancel the release, which promised to bring improved visual effects and 4K capability on Xbox One X, originally due to be released in 2017 before being delayed, as it proved to be "too technically demanding".

They admitted the pack was an "ambitious initiative that brought a new look to Minecraft but, unfortunately, the pack proved too technically demanding to implement as planned."

In a statement, they continued: "We've been trying to solve Super Duper for a long time.

"We wanted to wait until we determined the path forward before officially addressing the project.

"We're looking into different options with our Render Dragon graphics engine, and will have more to share soon."
