While the exact release date for part two of the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update is unclear, Mojang has stated that it will be released around "the holiday season", which is from October to December 2021.

For many, the second update is the big one. Lots of Minecraft players have gotten tired of the old world generation and are ready for the new and improved world generation that has been showcased.

Mojang decided that it wanted to make sure this world generation was perfect, so it delayed this part of the release to polish it to player's standards. Those who followed the Snapshot release knew they had trouble deciding how they wanted the caves to look and feel.

The video above is Mojang's official post showcasing some of the world generation found in the second part of the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update.
