Minecraft could be delayed on Xbox One, PS4, and PS Vita

It appears that those of you planning on getting your Minecraft fix on a current generation console and the PlayStation Vita are going to have to wait a little while longer. On July 29th, the studio behind the console ports of the beloved block-building simulator, 4J Studios, tweeted that the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita builds of Minecraft are still in a bug fixing state.

We're still bug fixing #MinecraftXbox1, #MinecraftPS4 and #MinecraftPSVita. Thanks for you patience!" tweeted 4J Studios earlier this week.

Today, August 1st, 4J Studios further confirmed that they are still fixing the upcoming builds and will notify us once they are handed over to the certification testing teams to give us a better idea of when they will be released.

"We're still fixing #MinecraftXbox1, #MinecraftPS4 and #MinecraftPSVita bugs. We'll let you know when we hand over to the Cert testing teams!" said 4J Studios.

Not only that, but a recent summer-themed TV advert for upcoming PS Vita titles lists Minecraft's release date as "Out In September."

Of course, this doesn't mean that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will also suffer from the same delay, but complied with the content of the recent tweets, it all but confirms it.

Minecraft for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita was originally announced by Mojang with an August release date and price of $19.99. However, existing owners of the last generation's console version will have the option of upgrading to their current generation equivalent for only $4.99.
