So none of your hard work is lost.
Minecraft has been a veritable sensation on the Xbox 360, with over ten million copies sold worldwide just on that console (worldwide sales of the game across all platforms exceed 40 million); a lot of people have put in a lot of time into Minecraft on the Xbox 360, so it’s understandable that they wouldn’t want to lose their progress, which could come about by something as simple as simply upgrading to the next gen console versions of the game.
Well, worry no more! You’re covered! Phil Spencer’s Twitter account has confirmed that your save file from the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft will carry over into the Xbox One version of the game. How this will work, especially given that the Xbox One version is supposed to be bigger, more expansive, and more complex (and generally closer to the PC version, relative to the Xbox 360 version, which was a limited sandbox), is as yet unknown, with Spencer only promising more details ‘soon.’
Do you have an Xbox 360, an Xbox One, and Minecraft on your Xbox 360 with the intent to upgrade to the Xbox One version of the game? If so, this might be some very good news to you.
