Minecraft, the sandbox game created by Mojang now available on a variety of formats, has managed to become very successful thanks not only to its excellent gameplay mechanics but also thanks to the new content that gets added regularly to the game. It’s been some time since the release of the latest version of the game and it seems like Minecraft fans will have to wait for a few more months before being able to download a new version of the game.
A few hours ago Mojang’s Jens Bergensten has confirmed on Twitter that Minecraft 1.9 won’t be released this year. The team wants to fix more bugs before release and keep the game stable during the holidays.
Minecraft has been released on a variety of formats, including consoles and smart devices, and it recently looked like the popular game was also going to be released soon on Wii U, with a rating for Minecraft Wii U Edition surfacing on the PEGI website right before the latest Nintendo Direct. Unfortunately nothing has been said on the game during the presentation, with the rating itself getting removed from the PEGI website last week. As of now, we have no idea if Minecraft Wii U Edition is indeed real or if the rating was simply a mistake on PEGI’s part.
The console versions of Minecraft have been recently updated with some new content like the Halloween 2015 skins, the Star Wars Prequel Skin Pack, the Halo Mash-up skins which have been recently updated following the release of Halo 5 Guardians and much more. Minecraft Pocket Edition has also been updated recently, with Redstone finally becoming available for the iOS and Android releases.
Minecraft is now available on a variety of formats including PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS and Android. More on updates and new content for all formats is constantly coming in so stay tuned for all the latest news on the popular sandbox game created by Mojang.
