Now that 4J Studios has released Title Update 14 on Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, many gamers are now beginning to question when the Xbox One version of the game is expected to release. Taking a moment to provide fans with an update on March 27, the developer gave the following brief status update regarding the upcoming launch of Minecraft on Microsoft’s next-gen console.

Still a lot to be done, but we're getting there.

Versions of the popular block-building title were originally expected to release on both Xbox One and Playstation 4 as launch titles. However, 4J Studios pushed back the release dates. At the time the developer stated that the decision was to focus on releasing the game on PS3 first. In December of 2013, that goal was reached when Minecraft: PS3 Edition became available for purchase from the PS Store. By that point, the developer had started work on new Title Updates as well as additional DLC packs which caused the next-gen versions of Minecraft to be pushed further into 2014.

Now, dealing with keeping two editions of the sandbox title updated and bug-free on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 seem to be further slowing the development of Minecraft on next-gen consoles. With the developers status update on Thursday, however, it looks like 4J Studios is slowing making progress to eventually release the game on Xbox One and PS4.
