Release date imminent?
After delays with the PS4 version, since it had to be resent for the final certification after some bugs had emerged, 4J Studios has revealed that the Xbox One version of Minecraft is now in the final certification phase at Microsoft.
This was revealed by the developer on Twitter. “We’ve handed Minecraft: Xbox One Edition over to Microsoft for final test!” Though the PS4 version was resent, it’s unlikely the same thing will happen to the Xbox One edition. Regardless, it’s still looking to be a while before Minecraft appears on either current gen console (along with the PS Vita version, which still needs more work).
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, along with the PS4 version, will offer far larger worlds than the previous generation versions. Will it look as stunningly beautiful as Minecraft on PC with mods? We’ll find out in the coming months so stay tuned for more information on a release date.
