Indie cult-hit Minecraft has been released on PC, Mac, Android, iOS devices and even Sony’s Xperia Play; but don’t expect to play the game on the PlayStation Vita, at least not yet.
The game’s developer, Mojang, has revealed this little fact during a webchat interview conducted earlier this week. Company exec, Daniel Kaplan has stated that they have “no plans” to bring the game to Sony’s upcoming next-gen handheld.
This news is quite surprising since Minecraft: Pocket Edition has been very successful on the Xperia Play – another Sony device. Minecraft: Pocket Edition launched exclusively on Sony’s Xperia Play last year and quickly became the Android marketplace’s most downloaded app globally with 8500 people who have played the game on the device.
This is some sad news indeed. Hopefully, Mojang and Sony will work something out as Minecraft is one of those games that will make a good fit for Sony’s PlayStation Vita.
