Microsoft Studios VP, Phil Spencer, confirmed in an interview with IGN that the Minecraft Xbox One Edition is “really close” to a release.
Spencer stated during GDC 2014 last week that while the game is almost ready, ultimately the release date is up to Mojang and 4J Studios.
“I talked to 4J Studios last night. 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.”
