'Minecraft' cross-play not coming to PS4 despite Microsoft's interest

15 June 2017

And with more than 100 million copies of Minecraft sold, it's a good bet plenty of people will try the servers.

Minecraft gamers will soon be able to game between Xbox One, Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, and even mobile devices.

"Our goal is to connect everyone together and, spiritually, that's what we're moving toward", executive producer Jesse Merriam was quoted as saying by Mashable.

Now with Rocket League heading to the Nintendo Switch and getting cross-platform play, it was revealed that Sony, once again, had denied cross-play between their platform and the others.

Sony's track record for allowing cross-platform play has been good so far, but perhaps they didn't want to offer it with their key competitor in the console space. They don not yet have any updates on Sony but the definitive goal is to bring all Minecraft players together, which is their main principle. Originally the game was written in Java programming language. On the other hand, those with the "Bedrock" version will simply go by "Minecraft".

Dialogue is the best way to tackle the political rift in the Arab world over Qatar, two top diplomats said Saturday in Moscow. On Saturday, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE made no mention of Mr Tillerson's call.

"We can't speak for Sony", Minecraft communications boss Aubrey Norris told GamesBeat.

The game began its journey in 2009 as an alpha version.

Microsoft also detailed changes coming to Minecraft graphics this fall in another update. But none of these new cross-platform features will work on PlayStation 4. "This pack will be available on Xbox One and Windows 10, performing best on high-end PCs and the Xbox One X", Microsoft said in a blog post.

Additionally, an update for Minecraft this year will add 4K support and more graphical options.
