Leaks for Minecraft Live 2023 have started to surface with a well-known Minecraft insider possibly spoiling what will be in the Minecraft 1.21 update.
Minecraft Live was introduced in 2020 as an online live show to introduce new and upcoming changes to the iconic game. Past reveals include new biomes and new blocks. Also part of this is a fan vote on new mobs that could be added to the game. Minecraft Live has been a yearly event since, with each event announcing a new themed update and mob.
Leaker godsunit has made a name for themselves as a source of insider knowledge for Minecraft updates. This year’s Minecraft Live is set to start fan voting on October 13, with the winner of the popular vote announced live on October 15. There’s a strong likelihood that the new 1.21 update for Minecraft will be revealed alongside the results. The leaker hinted at what could be included in the upcoming announcement.
What will be revealed at Minecraft Live 2023?
Minecraft Live 2023 will reportedly include the reveals of autocrafting, a new hostile mob, and two new kinds of blocks. Two separate leakers have hinted that this will be the case.
On October 10 godsunit tweeted a message calling for fans to “keep an eye out” on their Twitter for leaks regarding the next Minecraft Live starting October 11. With this proclamation, the banner image for the leaker’s Twitter was changed to an image that alludes to a previously leaked automated crafting system and a mob spawner surrounded by Copper and Tuff Blocks.
A now-deleted post on Reddit added more credibility to godsunit’s tweet. The Reddit user commented that autocrafting, a new hostile mob, and two new blocks would be added in Minecraft’s 1.21 update. This ties in with godsunit’s Twitter banner update, lending credence to both leakers’ claims.
While it wasn’t mentioned by the leakers, reports surfaced in September that Minecraft will receive a dedicated release on Xbox Series X/S consoles which may include ray-tracing. The news was leaked by the video game ratings board of Germany, but no official reveal has been made by Microsoft, Xbox, or Mojang.
Originally released on PC in November 2011, Minecraft has seen levels of success typically only dreamed of by game developers. Developed by Mojang and bought by Microsoft in 2014, Minecraft has permeated popular culture and become one of the most iconic games in the world. In its 12 years of existence, Minecraft has been released on almost any system one could imagine, including those as far-flung as tvOS and a special version for Raspberry Pi devices.
Minecraft Live 2023 begins October 15th at 1 p.m. ET. As with any leak, there is always a chance that the information is incorrect or that it is outdated. Internal decisions within the Minecraft development team may lead to different mobs or gameplay mechanics being released rather than what leakers may have heard.
