Minecraft is rapidly landing on a growing list of home console systems. 4J Studios has now brought versions of the popular building game to Xbox 360 and Playstation3, with editions also currently in the works for Xbox One, PS4, and PS Vita. Fans hoping that the series may also be coming to a Nintendo system received a bit of bad news after Minecraft creator Markus Persson confirmed on Dec 27 that there aren’t any plans to release a Wii U version of Minecraft at this time.

Persson, better known to many as Notch, stated that the various teams are simply too busy on other projects to have time to work on bringing Minecraft to the Wii U. Notch did say that there was no specific reason the series wasn’t coming to the Wii U as he personally loves Nintendo. Instead, there simply is too much work on bringing Minecraft to various other systems to think about adding another platform to that list.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sold 10 million copies since its release last year. The recently released PS3 version of the game is also off to a good start after it was launched earlier this month.
