Microsoft Minecraft update brings more players together

The Minecraft team is also looking into including the PlayStation 4 as part of this shared, cross-platform ecosystem for Minecraft, but has nothing to announce regarding concrete plans at this time. And with more than 100 million copies of Minecraft sold, it's a good bet plenty of people will try the servers.

Microsoft's conference at E3 2017 was as bombastic as ever, and their announcement of the Xbox One X came with a few exciting game announcements.

Executive producer Jesse Merriam said that their goal is to connect everyone together and this is the driving force behind their advances.

Then, anyone playing the game on Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, Xbox One, iOS, Android and Virtual Reality devices will be able to play online together. Though not explicitly stated, the constructions in the trailer suggest that it will support the Nintendo and Sony versions of the game, but certainly mobile, Xbox, PC, and VR players will all be able to play together without having to buy another version of the game on a different system. Originally the game was written in Java programming language. Its Mojang studio continues to develop Minecraft Java Edition even as it brings its more advanced features to the Bedrock versions.
