The wait for Minecraft on consoles other than the Xbox 360 continues as 4J Studios provided an update Sunday on the status of the PS3, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the popular open-world sandbox game.
"We're still bug fixing Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition. The bug list is getting shorter, but we're not there yet," 4J Studios wrote on its official Twitter account.
The developer re-arranged the release schedule for the game in November with plans to release the PS4 Edition at the console's launch thrown out the window. The PS3 version will now be released first and the PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita editions at a later date.
4J Studios did reveal a bit of good news on the next-gen console front, however, as Minecraft is at least functioning there.
"The game is running on both Xbox One and PS4, but there's a lot more work to do on both," 4J Studios explained. "No dates for either yet."
The PS4 and Xbox One Editions of Minecraft will support larger worlds and more player in multiplayer thanks to the larger memory sizes of both consoles. However, this also forks the development between the PS3, Xbox 360 and PS Vita versions which means extra work for 4J Studios.
