Optifine 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15 download links and official release dates have been one of the most discussed topics throughout. This is because Optifine has established itself and set it’s name in stone. It is currently considered  as one of the most “needed” Minecraft mods which have been dubbed essential to fully experience the game. 

Minecraft has grown a lot since being your basic sandbox block game. It is now the most downloaded and demanded Mod which millions of Minecraft players from the entire world are anxious about. Every time a new version of Minecraft is released you can bet your money that mostly all the players are waiting for the official Optifine release as well.


So why doesn’t Mojang just buy Optifine and add it as part of vanilla Minecraft? Well, In 2013 it was spread on Reddit that Mojang did attempt to buy the rights to Optifine however the creator declined the deal. This has caused some bad blood from both sides resulting in Mojang tweeting about Optifine is not the most ideal mod to download.

Optifine continues to grow and develop itself as one of the cornerstone Mods for Minecraft. During the release of Minecraft 1.15 – millions of players have run towards their search engines and reddit to find 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15 download however due to the fact that Optifine is independently developed by sp614x. We can do nothing else but wait for it’s release.

What is Optifine 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15

Optifine is a Minecraft Mod which optimizes Minecraft’s graphics making it run smoother and faster resulting in better gameplay experience. In addition, Optifine also adds multiple new video options such as dynamic lighting percentages, fog quality toggle, and smooth and multi-core chunk loading options just to name a few. 

Optifine was originally designed to completely overhaul Minecraft’s lighting and rendering system. It aimed to increase the details as well as the efficiency. Since Optifine is a client-side mod it will automatically crash if loaded by a server. This is why some modders say Optifine is not perfect – yet. But, as it continues to grow so does it’s compatibility.

In a nutshell, Optifine will increase your game’s performance by multiple folds and at the same time provide you with more customizability options. It lets you customize so many video options to the point where you can adjust the quality of clouds, grass, and more. You can customize Minecraft’s video to your heart’s content. However, do note that on rare occasions there is a very slight chance that it might actually decrease your performance. But, due to its reputation and positive feedback, almost all of the mod packs recommend players to use it.

Where can you download Optifine 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15

There are plenty of websites and resources on the internet which claim to have the official download of Optifine but you’d be surprised. After you actually download the mod it would just be a previous version renamed. This is why players need to be wary of where they download mods and texture packs. Some sources might actually upload trojans, viruses, malwares and other harmful elements into your computer without you even knowing it. Which is why it is always recommended to learn the best way to download optifine.

Why is Optifine 1.15.1 not out yet 

Since Minecraft 1.15 has been officially released late 2019 millions of Minecraft players have been buzzing about the official release date of Optifine 1.15.1. Like us, we also asked the question why Optifine 1.15.1 is not out yet? This is why we did some research.

Based on what we have uncovered – there is no Optifine team. Optifine is independently developed by sp614x. This is why it may take some time for him to make Optifine compatible with the latest version of Minecraft. So why doesn’t he hire help? Well, as you can probably see optifine is a FREE mod. He only makes his funds from donations and patronage funds. Optifine is not heavily funded by a giant corporation. This is why we need to be patient and understand the situation.

optifine 1.15.2 release date

As you can see from this recent tweet it has taken the developer of Optifine to do his magic and finish all the fixes. Scroll below to see the detailed progress report.

But do not worry. A preview version of Optifine 1.15.2 has already been released for public use. You can download it by scrolling to the bottom of this article.

Other Optifine Versions

As you might have already known; Optifine has already made tons of releases which is why you can download all of the versions except the latest ones which just came out a few months ago. So if Minecraft 1.15 was released in September it might take the developer some months to fully make Optifine 1.15.1 fully run on Minecraft 1.15. But, let’s say 1.15.1 has been released – since it is just a patch of the main version update you can expect the developer to be able to release Optifine 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15 quicker.

Since Optifine 1.15.2 / 1.15.1 / 1.15 is not out yet here is the list of all Optifine versions which you might want to download.
