When Microsoft acquired Mojang Studios, the creators of Minecraft, a lot of people were worried about the fate of the crowd favorite, open world, sandbox title; but so far, nothing grave has happened.
But, using their new found acquisition, the company has decided to bring the mobile version of the game to their very own Windows phone platform. For a long time, people using their Nokia based phones were not happy because the range of games available on it was nowhere compared to the ones offered on the iOS or Android OSs. While apps made their way eventually, games were never released; which means that the Minecraft Pocked Edition on Windows phone is an excellent addition for players who were longing to give it a try.
Mojang Makes the Announcement
Mojang’s Jens Bergensten, the lead developer of the game made the announcement official. “Yes, Minecraft Pocket Edition is coming to the Windows Phone. The port already runs on the platform smoothly but we still have a lot of work to do before releasing it on the phones”.
We are yet to see how the game fares on a relatively new platform, where it was never expected to release; but the acquisition made it possible. Earlier, even before Microsoft purchased the company Mojang, it was said that in line with their CEO’s words about cloud and mobile focused approach, they will be using this acquisition to strengthen their mobile zone. The release of the Minecraft Pocket Edition is seen as one such move and we expect it to continue for a long time to come.
The mobile version of the game is already available on Apple’s App store and Google’s Play Store. It has received tremendous response from fans and Minecraft Pocket Edition has already sold over 21 million copies which shows how strong it is in the handheld area. It has already got released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One console.
In their recent Twitter message, 4J studios, the developers of the console ports confirmed that Minecraft PS Vita edition is also ready and is all set to go out for the handheld Sony console this week. So far, Microsoft’s acquisition of Mojang hasn’t affected the game’s presence on Sony consoles and we expect it to continue; so, the gamers on all platforms could enjoy titles without any restrictions. Let us know if you would be looking forward to play it on the Windows Phone.
