4J Studios, the developers behind Minecraft on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One will be handling development for the game on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. After an announcement at Sony’s Gamescom 2013 press conference, 4J confirmed via Twitter.
“Happy to confirm we’re developing Minecraft PS3, PS4 & PS Vita Editions for Mojang, as well as Xbox 360 & Xbox One Editions!”
4J Studios hasn’t clarified what types of updates will be coming to the PlayStation versions, but it would make sense for the developer to be actively developing the game at the same pace for the purpose of pushing out updates. So that could signal that the PlayStation versions of Minecraft will come with at least all the content that is coming with Title Update 12 on the Xbox 360.
Minecraft Xbox 360 fans have been waiting for months for the title update to arrive on the Xbox, and we have our culprit as to the delay. 4J’s workload has increased significantly with addition of three new platforms to develop for.
