While 4J Studios is currently hard at work to release the Playstation 3 version of Minecraft, the developer has revealed that next-gen versions of the popular block building title aren’t far behind as they have working editions of the series running on both the Xbox and PS4. 4J Studios announced on Dec 8 that they currently have the game working on both next-gen consoles but they still have a lot of bugs to fix before the new editions are ready for release.
The developer recently announced that they are refocusing their efforts to launch Minecraft: PS3 Edition ahead of all other versions. This means that fans won’t see Minecraft on next-gen systems until after its Playstation 3 release. Originally, 4J Studios said that getting the PS3 version out would take precedence above all other development but the team recently teased a new skin pack release.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is available now. Versions of the hit title are also planned to release on the Playstation 3, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PS Vita. The initial plan was for the Xbox One and PS4 editions of Minecraft to be launch titles on the next-gen consoles. However, the developer decided that they wanted to get PS3 version released first and to make sure that the games are free of bugs before their launch. 4J Studios also informed fans this Sunday that they are getting closer to launching the PS3 edition as they are making increasing progress on removing bugs.
