By   /   2 years ago

4J Studios, the Scottish development company behind the console versions of Minecraft announced back in April that they had shifted their main focus to the next generation console versions of the game.

It seems as if the work on creating the next generation version of Minecraft is advancing rapidly and we might even get to see the games release by the end of this year. In fact, retail giant Walmart even has the release date up on the sale page of the Xbox One Minecraft.

Although the page states a release date of December 2014, there is still no official word from the developers about the set release date. It is however, confirmed that the PS Vita, PS4 version are expected to be released this year as seen from the comments here.

According to 4J Studios, the Xbox One and PS4 version of the game will be a “lot bigger” in terms of map size compared to Xbox 360 and PS3 versions however, world size is not “infinite” due to save size limitations.


The twitter profile of the company also revealed that the PS4 version of the game will be utilizing the DualShock4 touchpad for the Creative UI. This is one of the first platform specific features the developers have revealed.

Players who own the PS3 or Xbox 360 copies of the game will be able to transfer their saves from old games to the new ones as announced in April.
