The upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is going well, during next decade we will face the ten-fold increase in experimental data. The application of state-of-the-art detectors and data acquisition systems requires high-performance simulation support, which even more demanding in case of heavy ion collisions. Our basic aim was to develop a Monte-Carlo simulation code for heavy ion collisions (but applicable for proton-proton collisions, as well), which can adopt all available acceleration opportunities from hardware side (e.g. GPUs) and innovative software solutions (e.g. machine learning). The new version of HIJING (Heavy Ion Jet INteraction Generator) fulfil these expectations. We present the latest results on hardware accelerations, indicate the novel software solutions and display the applicability of HIJING++ on existing heavy ion data. The presentation of our developments will indicate and summarize the main efforts of near future MC-codes for LHC physics.
