Minecraft on Xbox One: “We’re Really Close”
“Really excited about the quality.”
Minecraft has been super successful on basically every platform it has hit till date, and for good reason. It’s addictive gameplay appeals to almost everyone. So much so, in fact, that reportedly, the Xbox 360 version of the game sold over ten million copies. The game was also announced for the Xbox One at E3 last year, and Microsoft Game Studios’ corporate vice president Phil Spencer says they’re “really close” to the completion of the game.
“I talked to [4J Studios] last night,” Spencer told IGN at GDC last week. “They feel really good about the progress that they’re making. It’s their game, and it’d be Mojang’s game. We graciously host it on our platform.
“They control the [release] date of that, but I’ll tell people that we’re getting really close. I talked with Notch [aka Mojang founder Markus Persson] last night, and they’re really excited about the quality.”
Minecraft is also currently in development for the PS Vita and the PS4. Stay tuned for more coverage.
