In the highschool we're working with Minecraft for Raspberry Pi (also known as MCRP) to learn ruby.

I searched a little bit around the web, and I found the official page of it ( and I discovered the last post was over 3 years ago.

No post on Mojang's blog about MCRP has been posted since its announcement. The developer of MCRP is the same of MC:PE.

Is Minecraft for Raspberry PI discontinued?

@Ghanima I don't understand you comment... – spund3 Jan 25 at 16:08
Well. You've got a Pi. Whenever you have a non-gaming question, just come over. That's all I want to say. – Ghanima Jan 25 at 16:17
@Ghanima i understand your confussion: I'm asking about a game, the platform of the game doesn't matters here. – spund3 Jan 25 at 16:19
There's no confusion. This was merely an informational comment to make you aware of RPi.SE just in case you'll be interested. That's all :) And in fact the platform does matter, as the game had to be ported to the Pi's ARM processor - which might also matter wrt to its continued support. But again, this was just a little pointer to the mere existance of the site, no force applied, no wish to pull this particular question over. – Ghanima Jan 25 at 16:45

No, but it does not seem to be under active development.

As of 2014, it has been included in Raspbian and can be installed via:

sudo apt-get install minecraft-pi
