Minecraft Xbox One Will Expand 8-Player Multiplayer After Release

By   /   Jul 11, 2014

Minecraft Xbox One and PS4 version are being waited for by the millions of console owners who wish to play the critically acclaimed game on the new consoles. However, now that we are closing in on it, developer 4J Studios is talking about the game.

The latest bit of information that they have shared is that the maximum number of players that can take part in the multiplayer would be eight at the time of release.

However, he said that the developers planned to increase that in the future with the help of downloadable updates. Lead producer for the Minecraft series, Roger Carpenter recently tweeted to confirm the news:


Although they won’t give up on the exact release date 4J Studios is saying that they ‘can see the light at the end of the tunnel.’

The Minecraft Xbox One title was revealed back in 2013 at the E3 media briefing of Microsoft.

It was then that Phil Harrison the VP of Microsoft claimed the game would be a launch title for the console – which of course didn’t happen. Then in March this year we were told by Phil Spencer, the then vice president of Microsoft Game Studios that the release of the game was ‘really close.

Moving on, listing was spotted on Walmart website in May that suggested a December 2014 release date for Minecraft Xbox One version.

Although this has been negated by 4J Studios in a Q & A session where they claimed that they were looking at a Q2 – Q3 release.

Now, it is expected that Minecraft Xbox One version will be released in August this year.
