A representative from 4J Studios has revealed the patch update plans for “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” in addition to the upcoming console ports of the open-world sandbox video game. According to several messages from the official Twitter page of the company on Oct. 28, the studio confirmed that the staff members won’t be able to attend this year’s “Minecon” event. This is because the development team is busy developing “Minecraft for the PS3, PS4, Playstation Vita and Xbox One systems.
The representative went on to confirm that future updates will be released on all platforms for the console iterations. The plan is to simultaneously send the title update for certification testing to Sony and Microsoft although he cautioned fans that it might not be possible. You can find some screenshots from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” in the slideshow near the top of this article and the comments from 4J Studios representative below:
Yes, we'll be releasing updates in the future across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. The aim is to have updates submitted to Cert testing across all platforms at the same time. Might not happen that way though.
The Xbox One version of “Minecraft” was confirmed during Microsoft’s media briefing at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo while the PS3, PS4, Playstation Vita ports for the open-world sandbox video game was announced at the GamesCom convention. 4J Studios’ previous statement suggests that the upcoming releases should be similar to “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition,” which was released for Microsoft’s current-generation console in 2012.
The official release dates have not yet been announced for “Minecraft” on the PS3, PS4, Playstation Vita and Xbox One. You can pre-order the consoles from Amazon in the following links: PS4 and Xbox One
