    I mean it's not the language of programming that defines a game. They can recreate the exact same game than Java. Moreover, a lot of people don't like the fact there is two different minecraft that split the community. Having the same language of programming could help the two versions to be closer, but it's not compulsory at all.

    I would be very happy if that happened, the java edition is getting heavier and heavier, I can barely play 10 or 15 chunks at 30 FPS or less in the java version, now in the bedrock version made in c++ I can barely play 30 chunks at 60 FPS. But adding new features and functionalities through mods, datapacks, texture packs in bedrock is horrible, besides the features that have java for the same PC platform. Why don't you just put the two versions together? putting all the features and qualities you have into java and bedrock? Pardon my English.

    Why not instead port all of the jave features on bedrock and call it Minecraft universal this can go slowly starting with
    Better mod support and more sharing of vode from the developers to the community but this woud be useful

    This is an idea I've had for a long time after seeing how well Bedrock Edition runs compared to java. The big problem with it however, is the fact that all modders will have to learn C++ (which is harder to learn than Java) to keep modding and about half of current mods will be discontinued because people don't wanna deal with learning another programming language. I think C++ is also the reason the Java modding community can't support Bedrock. Most people can't be bothered with the hassle and prefer to stick to what they already know. This change would take a big leap on the Minecraft community but I think it would be for the better in the long term.

    I also think changing to another language would improve a lot the game. Just want to say that java isn't that bad, it actually really good for OTHER applications.

    Porting to C++ would mess up a lot of FIRMLY SET architecture. Modding support would restart from scratch. All minecraft Servers would restart form scratch. Tons of unintended vulnerabilites may be introduced. New duplications will be introduced. Development may slow. There's a reason there's two versions. There's bedrock and Java edition. If you want performance, play bedrock, if you want classic experience or Java features or Modding support. Play Java.

    It wouldn't be  Minecraft Java Edition anymore because it's not coded in Java, it would be just Bedrock Edition with different features.

    My aunt's boyfriend named chris recreated Minecraft Java in C++ (might ask him to add it to github) for his friend.
