    you would be able to code more if there was a nether or survival to cade your own mobs or Redstone to make your own Redstone parts.

    Actually you would be suprised i installed kodi on my raspberry pi and it played 720P video better then my xbox 360 or PS4 if you were to make a pi edition that had its settings very low it would be possible i mean someone got java edition working on the pi so its possible and bedrock is soo optimized

    Reasons why this won't happen:

    1. Mojang announced a long time ago that they would no longer update the Raspberry Pi version of the game.

    2. The Raspberry Pi is like 30 dollars and runs like a disabled potato.

    3. Almost nobody has a Raspberry Pi these days so it really isn't worth it for the devs to work on yet another version of the game.

    Sorry, kid. Just not happening.

    Jakecraft, funny for you to say that one week prior to the release of RPi 4, which turns out to be like 30-40% more powerful in games. RPi aren't as weak as they used to be.

    You can run Minecraft 1.8.9 - the Java edition - on an old RPi 2. And while it runs at 20-30 fps with Optifine and all settings set to off/lowest, remember it's the Java edition we're talking about. In my book it's already pretty good.

    Then you have Minecraft 1.12.2 running on the latest recently-released RPi 4 at 40-60 fps on default settings. Add Optifine and BetterFPS, and you can get even more frames.

    Though I agree, from developers' standpoint it doesn't make much sense to develop the game for the RPi, the only gaming-related use this thing is bought for is emulation. Nobody buys it to use as a "daily driver" device. Also I'm pretty sure people will find a way to put Android on a RPi 4, which would enable RPi owners to play Minecraft PE. And I've heard there are ways to run MCPE on Linux, so... yeah, not much of a point.

    Well, you need optifine and stuff like that but it runs smoothly but is kind of laggy in fullscreen.
