Minecraft For Xbox One Closing in On Release

Looks like Minecraft’s Xbox One version is getting closer to release. Microsoft Game Studios Vice President Phil Spencer told IGN:

“I talked to [4J Studios] last night,” Spencer said. “They feel really good about the progress that they’re making. It’s their game, and it’d be Mojang’s game. We graciously host it on our platform.

“But unlike on 360 where they had never been on console before and the developer relationship, I’ll say, was very tight from the beginning, this is something that’s really in their hands now,” Spencer continued. “They’re a full-fledged developer in every sense. They control the [release] date of that, but I’ll tell people that we’re getting really close. I talked with Notch [aka Mojang founder Markus Persson] last night, and they’re really excited about the quality.”

4J Studios, for its part, addressed the progress on its Twitter account Thursday, saying there is “still a lot to be done, but we’re getting there.”
