Those craving a PlayStation version of Minecraft, and all of its addictive goodness, may be in luck. Though the game’s console release has been exclusive to Microsoft, that deal may be coming to an end. Earlier this week, Jens Bergensten (lead designer for the mobile versions of Minecraft), told iGamer what may happen after this deal comes to a close.
When it runs out, we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.
Minecraft was originally released on the Xbox 360 in May of 2012. That means that this coming May could see the end of their exclusivity contract, though nothing official has been stated to back that up. The 360’s version has sold over 5 million copies, making it sensible for Mojang to release this breakout title for as many potential buyers as possible.
With that said, Mojang seems to be another developer in an increasingly long list of game makers that have no interest in developing for Nintendo’s new console. No further statements were made as to why there will not be a Wii U version of this incredibly successful title, though one can easily assume that the system’s poor sales are to blame.
