Microsoft: Minecraft Release on Xbox One “Really Close”

While Minecraft may never come to Oculus Rift, it is indeed headed to Xbox One, as Microsoft's Phil Spencer has confirmed that the hit indie title will be arriving on the console very soon.

"I talked to [4J Studios] last night," Spencer told IGN. "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. 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 last night, and they’re really excited about the quality."

Will you pick up Minecraft for Xbox One when it eventually arrives, or have you already had your fill of the popular world-building game on other platforms?
