Please be excited.
Minecraft, the insanely popular indie game that has at this point become a pop culture phenomenon, decided to break its Xbox 360 console exclusivity earlier this year with the announcement that it would be coming to PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One as well. While the PS3 version launched recently, the other three are nowhere in sight. Now, it seems like we might have to wait for them a little while longer than we initially thought.
Examiner reports that 4J Studios, the masterminds behind the console ports, have confirmed that the other versions in question will not be releasing till March 2014, and that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will also not be getting any updates in the meanwhile.
“Thanks for another great year everyone! 4J Studios is now off for a Christmas break. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas,” the developer wrote on their Twitter account.
“We’ll be back in 2014 to continue work on #MinecraftXBLA, #MinecraftPS3, #MinecraftXbox1, #MinecraftPS4 and #MinecraftPSVita.”
Looks like players who want updates to their console version (or just a version for their console in the first place) will have to wait a little while longer.
