    Titles should only be listed once they are released with RTX features implemented.

    Agreed, that's why the list only contains titles that have shown footage of their RTX implementation, or had the developers explicitly state RTX support.

    The same logic applies to any upcoming pc/console games feature list prior to release? Ignore the game developers stated feature list until the game is actually released?

    Thats not the same at all and i think you know it. This isnt an independently advertised core feature of the game that was planned by the developer. When making a list to demonstrate the prevalence of a technology i think its perfectly reasonable given the above to use only titles that have actually implemented the tech in a shipping. product.

    I think we disagree, but you are entitled to your opinion. The developer did have a video demo and stated their intent to implement.
    I'd rather avoid targeting specific pre-release game features when you never know what feature set you'll get until product release.

    I think its likely that demo was done mostly by nvidia

    It's a studio produced video, granted nvidia may have assisted with the technology.

    Starting tomorrow, Microsoft and NVIDIA will announce that Minecraft will have an RTX accelerated official path tracing patch.
    Also NVIDIA will announce several more new RTX games, at Gamescom.

    Or maybe he got on the job? Maybe the situation will be the same as Quake 2.
    Anyway, this upcoming announcement puts the recent cancellation of the graphics update for Minecraft into context, Microsoft may have chosen to focus on one path for a graphical overhaul instead of two.

    So 3 new RTX games:

    Dying Light 2
    Synced: Off Planet
    Minecraft

    Beyond that, we now know that Wolfesntein YoungBlood, Watch Dogs Legion, Synced: Off Planet and Vampires Bloodlines 2 will have RTX reflections, Modern Warfare will have RTX shadows, and Minecraft will be path traced to include all: reflections, shadows and lighting.

    Is the "Minecraft RTX" separate from the Super Duper Graphics -upgrade? Since the latter just got cancelled last week

    The MineCraft update is planned to use DXR not RTX longterm

    Actual Blog post about it with snippets below: https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/article/render-dragon-and-nvidia-ray-tracing

    "It’ll be playable on Windows 10 with devices that are capable of DirectX R"
    "and we plan to expand it to future platforms that support DirectX R raytracing"

    We’ll have more news to share later this year, as well as the technical requirements. Naturally, we want your feedback through every step of this process. That’s why we plan to enable you to preview the new ray tracing features by turning on “Optional graphics with RTX” in the settings screen of Minecraft in a future beta. You can expect that feature in the new year. We also plan to enable some of these new features, such as improved emissivity and directional lighting, on other Bedrock platforms! Speaking of which…

    Perhaps this is the reason they killed the super graphics pack. This makes much more sense to pursue.

    and... I'm glad they did it. I feel like the mod community really put on some pressure to showcase how much better minecraft could look with it on.

    Does that mean the DXR fallback method won't work until a future date?

    It doesn't matter anyway, RTX works through DXR, and the only DXR capable hardware for now are Pascal and Turing.

    The new indie title Deliver Us The Moon announced the inclusion of RTX through a video comparison.
