On March 8, Mojang's Jens Bergensten, lead designer of "Minecraft: Pocket Edition," clarified the statements that he made on March 5 when he said that "Minecraft" is less likely to hit the Wii U than other platforms. "Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we’ll consider "Minecraft" for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely" Bergensten stated.
When gamers heard this, they lost all hope for a Wii U version of "Minecraft." Yesterday, Bergensten had another interview and he decided to clarify what he meant by this. "The reason I said that is that the Wii U hasn't even been mentioned when we're talking about "Minecraft" platforms. However, I'm only responsible for the PC and Pocket editions, so the question wasn't mine to answer. The Wii U is no more likely than any other platforms, but no less either" said Bergensten.
It looks as if gamers now have a little bit of hope for a Wii U version of the game. Bergensten is only responsible for mobile and PC versions of the game and his word on any new console versions aren't certain. To receive some relatively concrete info on a possible Wii U version of the game, the console developers will eventually have to be interviewed. Since they could very well be working on a PlayStation version after Microsoft's Xbox 360 exclusivity deal runs out, the game could come to all consoles such as PS3, PS4, Wii U and the next Xbox.
If Mojang decided to make a 3DS and Vita version of the game, Bergensten would most likely know info about the development of those versions before anybody else in the industry. If a Wii U version gets the green light for development, there is a wide range of possibilities for the GamePad especially with the inventory aspect of the game. Expect to find more info about a "Minecraft" game for the Wii U in the near future as it's a major possibility.
