Minecraft: Release date and details for Update 1.17.1

Just recently, the Mojang development studio released the extensive update 1.17 for the sandbox game Minecraft, which brought a lot of new content with it. But the team doesn’t just sit back and relax, but is already working feverishly on the next update – version 1.17.1. And it should appear earlier than many of you might have thought.

Minecraft Update 1.17.1 Release date

As Mojang has announced, the release of update 1.17.1 is for Minecraft already planned for July 6, 2021 – i.e. next Tuesday.

However, the team made it clear that the deadline could be postponed should some serious bugs arise over the next few days. Nevertheless, you should mark the 6th of July in your calendar to be on the safe side.

Minecraft Update 1.17.1 details

In terms of content, the focus of the next update is primarily on bug fixes and optimizations in order to iron out some of the flaws in version 1.17. In the future, axolotls that were previously caught will no longer constantly try to leave the water.
