Everyone thought that Minecraft for Xbox One will be delayed more, when the developers said that they are still fixing some bugs on that version before sending it to Microsoft for certification. In the meantime, Sony has sent back Minecraft: PlayStation 4 to the developers to fix some issues they found in the game. 4J Studios fixed them and send the game to Sony for certification, again.
That made a lot of Xbox One owners upset on the developers, because they didn’t hear any news about the Minecraft: Xbox One version. However, they got some good news this Friday, as 4J Studios announced on their twitter account that they fixed the bugs and they’ve sent the version to Microsoft for certification.
4J Studios wanted to release Minecraft for the next-generation consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4 by the end of August, but because of the problems they had and the certification process, it seems that the game will be released somewhere in the middle of September.
All the games that are released for Xbox One has to be approved by Microsoft first, as well as all the games that are released for PlayStation 4 has to be approved by Sony first. This certification process can take up to two weeks. However, the last time when Sony replied to 4J Studios about Minecraft: PlayStation 4 it took only 8 days.
Minecraft: Xbox One will probably be released in the middle of September, in case Microsoft won’t find any problems in the game. In case they are found, we are probably going to expect another 2 weeks delay.
The upcoming Minecraft version on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will have 36 larger worlds than the ones which are currently in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Aside from this, they will come with improved graphics and greater draw distance, allowing you to see further. Both of the new versions of the game will allow players to import their saved worlds from Minecraft: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This way, the players will not have to start over when installing Minecraft on the next-generation consoles.
Aside from these two versions of Minecraft, the developers are planning to release Minecraft for PlayStation Vita also. However, they didn’t send the version yet to Sony for certification and it seems that this version of the game will be delayed a bit more than expected.
