It appears the developers messed up really bad and they admitted to it on Twitter as well. Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.16.0 Update was delayed because, quoting Tommaso, they “messed up with the creepers”. Definitely sad news for all MCPE fans. Like you guys, we waited for the Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.16.0 Update to release today. But our hopes were crushed as well. Furthermore, to add insult to injury, the update is being delayed for a couple of dates. At this point, we have no solid release date info but we’ll let you know when we do.
