Here’s what we learned about what’s coming for Minecraft.
Future Armor Types
When asked about future armor types, we learned that developers are shooting for armors to have different inherent strengths akin to Netherite Armor not melting in lava.
Whether this means future changes to other armor types or more in this direction with future armor types remains to be seen.

Copper Tools, Armor
When the team was asked about tools and armor from Copper in the Caves and Cliffs Update, we learned that a Copper armor and tool type is unlikely.
This is because Mojang wants new armors and tool types to have specific individual advantages, and while we can expect more items in the future, it doesn’t seem like Copper is the right fit.

Off Hand Changes for Bedrock Edition
In Minecraft Bedrock Edition players can carry relevant items in their offhand like shields and maps, but at the suggestion of a question, we may soon see plenty of other items begin to work in this way.
While the team gave no specifics for this, it seems likely this type of change will come in the future. The team clarified that the intention is to continue joining together the Java and Bedrock Edition experiences in Minecraft, and this could be one change on the way.
