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 (pi.minecraft.net) 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?

  • Well. You've got a Pi. Whenever you have a non-gaming question, just come over. That's all I want to say.

  • @Ghanima i understand your confussion: I'm asking about a game, the platform of the game doesn't matters here.

  • 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.

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
  • Wow, that's new for me, I didn't knew MCRP was in Raspian! Thanks for the info! +1!

It is no longer being updated.

I found this:

It ded :( The original team has stopped supporting it and starting with 0.9 MCPE became a lot more ambitious technically, which also means that it became a lot harder to strip down to run on a Raspberry Pi. Actually, we finished removing all Pi related code to reduce complexity in 2015. Maybe someday we'll revisit it but I wouldn't hold my breath :P On the other hand, Win10 runs on the Pi so you can run the Win10 version there! ... I guess it's something

from Tommaso Checci here.

The original comment on reddit can be found here.


This is an old question, but the answer as changed. This edition has been discontinued.

Pi Edition never received any subsequent updates and is no longer updated. Despite this, it is included by default on Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian).
