The developer behind the PS3, PS4 and Playstation Vita versions of “Minecraft” has been revealed. According to a report by Scottish Games on Aug. 23, 4J Studios will be porting the open-world sandbox video game to the three Sony platforms.
The studio is best known for “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition,” which has sold over eight million units so far on the Xbox Live Marketplace and physical retailers. The team also recently released the TU12 patch, which upgraded the console port with new and improved features in addition to fixing several lingering issues.
The PS4 version of “Minecraft” was first announced during the press conference that was held by Sony at this year’s GamesCom convention. The port will be released alongside the launch of the next-generation system, which is slated to come out on Nov. 15. Mojang, the original developer of the video game, later confirmed that the PS3 and Playstation Vita ports are also in development.
4J Studios seem to have a lot on their plate as they are also developing the Xbox One iteration of “Minecraft.” The company also promised that the updates to “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” will continue.
