Minecraft for the next-generation consoles Xbox One and PS4 and PlayStation Vita is expected to come in August.
Few days ago, 4J Studios wrote on their twitter account that they can see the light at the end of the tunnel, meaning that they are close to finishing the upcoming Minecraft for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. They recently revealed that release of Title Update 17 will be delayed a little bit, because 4J Studios, as we mentioned above, are focused on bringing Minecraft for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, on time.
Roger Carpenter, the lead Producer for Minecraft on Xbox One and Xbox 360, said on his twitter account that Minecraft: Xbox One version will be able to hold up to 8 players in multiplayer mode, but he confirmed that they will keep working on this feature to allow more players in an upcoming update.
The Minecraft worlds on the next-generation consoles will be 36 larger than on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The players who already bought the game on their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will be able to “upgrade” their accounts to Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for 4.99 dollars, while new Minecraft players will have to pay 19.99 dollars for Minecraft on one of the next-generation consoles. The players will have the option to save their worlds from Minecraft: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions and import it to the Minecraft: Xbox One or PlayStation 4 version. The players who already have Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, will get a free copy of Minecraft: PlayStation Vita.
Minecraft is one of the most wanted games, with more than 12 million copies sold for Xbox 360, 15 million copies for Windows PC and a total of 54 million copies across all platforms.
