The Caves and Cliffs update for Minecraft is absolutely gargantuan, even just after the release of the first part of the Caves and Cliffs 1.17 update. This means the work is far from done for Mojang Studios, which is release patch 1.17.2 for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition today. The new update does not include all major new features or changes, but it includes an important bug fix that many players have complained about. Diamond ore is now back to normal in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.

After the release of the first part of the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs update, many players were reporting that Diamond Ore was strangely hard to find and was only generated in surprisingly low quantities. On the other hand, andesite and diorite, mainly decorative blocks, generated excessive amounts. With the 1.17.2 patch, both of these issues should be fixed.

Minecraft: Bedrock Edition Patch 1.17.2 Update is now live on all platforms including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5PS4, To change, and PC. Minecraft is already one of the best Xbox games, and the 1.17.2 patch makes it a little better.
