The world’s most popular block-building video game isn’t only coming to Microsoft’s Xbox One, it is also heading to PlayStation 4.

Sony revealed that the world-creating game is coming to PS4 at the system’s launch. Prior to this, Minecraft was only available on consoles on Xbox 360.

Sony didn’t provide any details about the release of the game, and we’ve reached out to Minecraft developer Mojang for comment.


Minecraft is also coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Microsoft employed its own developer to produce the Minecraft port for Xbox 360. We’ve reached out to Sony to determine how the game will work for its devices.
