Minecraft Pocket Edition

Minecraft: PE Coming to Windows Phone


What’s a Windows Phone, you ask? And that’s blank stare might be one of the reasons Microsoft was willing to spend $2.5 billion to purchase Mojang and Minecraft.

Minecraft lead developer Jens Bergensten confirmed the news in a tweet.

“Yes, Minecraft: Pocket Edition *is* coming to the Windows Phone! The port runs already, but there’s still much to do before any release,” he tweeted.

It seems the coming purchase has cleared the way for a version of Minecraft to be created for Microsoft’s third-place platform. Will it be a system seller? Will it have exclusive features that encourage Minecraft players to choose it over the existing Minecraft PE? These are good questions for people that have time machines.

Bergensten did not say when the new version will be released.
