4J Studios may have stealthily provided some release date updates on “Minecraft Xbox One Edition,” “Minecraft PS4 Edition” and “Minecraft Vita Edition.” According to a report from Gameranx on April 11, the development team showed off a bottle of “Perfect Dark Rum.” Before the console ports of “Minecraft,” the studio was responsible for porting the “Perfect Dark” video game from the Nintendo 64 to the Xbox 360.

The real news can be seen in the background of the photo, however. 4J Studios provided a look at a notification screen from “Minecraft PS4 Edition” indicating that the player should not turn off the next-generation system when the level auto-save feature icon is active. In order to proceed, players must select the “OK” option to close the notification screen.

The same picture also provided a first look at “Minecraft Vita Edition.” Unlike “Minecraft PS4 Edition” and “Minecraft Xbox One Edition,” the development team has kept quiet on the progress from the handheld console version of the open-world sandbox video game. With the image, 4J Studios reassured fans that the software product is still advancing despite the lack of information.

Finally, the controller for the Xbox One system is also hidden behind the “Perfect Dark Rum” bottle. The studio stated in the past that they are going to center their attention on the upcoming ports after releasing the latest patches for “Minecraft PS3 Edition” and “Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition.” You can find the teaser picture from the official 4J Studios Twitter page with the photo located to the left of this article.

The official release dates for “Minecraft Xbox One Edition,” “Minecraft PS4 Edition” and “Minecraft Vita Edition” have not yet been disclosed. Microsoft Studios did indicate that an announcement regarding the launch of the Xbox One version should be made in the near future. The aforesaid photo also indicated that the development team is making some progress with all three upcoming versions.

“Minecraft” was released first for the PC and mobile platforms in 2011. The Xbox 360 version would come out a year later, followed by the launch of the PS3 iteration in late 2013. The popular video game has sold nearly 50 million units so far even without the releases of “Minecraft Xbox One Edition,” “Minecraft PS4 Edition” and “Minecraft Vita Edition.”
