Minecraft's trial chambers' release has been a matter of some speculation due to their recent appearances on Java Snapshots and Bedrock Previews. Mojang has been mum on a release window for trial chambers or the 1.21 update they'll be included in. However, some clues seem to indicate that fans can look to early June 2024 as a tentative release window.

Trial chambers were shown off a bit during Minecraft Live 2023, and Mojang concluded that they would arrive at their full capacity whenever the upcoming 1.21 update made its debut. Although trial chambers are currently within the game's snapshots/previews, they remain Experimental Features that are being thoroughly tested, and Mojang may introduce new features to them in the coming months.

Regardless, all signs seem to point to a trial chamber release in the first week of June 2024.

Update: Trial chambers have been confirmed to release on June 13, 2024.

Although Mojang will likely have a confirmed Minecraft 1.21 release date soon, the developer's previous update release schedule seems to point to June 7, 2024, as the trial chamber release date and that of 1.21 as a whole. This is based on the fact that the last two major versions of the game (1.19 and 1.20) were both released on June 7, the year following their announcement.

It stands to reason then that if Mojang follows suit with its recent update trend, 1.21 and the trial chamber's release will take place on June 7, 2024. This could certainly change depending on whether or not Mojang needs more time to fine-tune things, but the addition of 1.21 content as Experimental Features in Minecraft snapshots/previews helps with the testing process.

Currently, several aspects of trial chambers still have some work ahead of them. Trial keys in Minecraft that appear from deactivated trial spawner blocks still don't seem to have a use, and the loot tables for chests within trial chambers may continue to be tweaked to make them an overall rewarding structure to explore.

Mojang does things in its own time and not before, but the previews at Minecraft Live 2023 suggest that it's only a matter of time before players will reach the 1.21 update/trial chamber release.

For the time being, fans will have to keep an eye on official announcements from Mojang, and they may want to circle June 7 on their 2024 calendars. One way or another, it shouldn't be long before the community gets confirmation on the trial chamber release alongside all of the other intriguing content in the 1.21 update, like the crafter block, breeze mobs, new copper/tuff blocks, and much more.
