The next gen console versions of Minecraft won’t have the “infinite” world of the PC version of the game, according to console developer 4J studios.
The studio tweeted this week that it is working with Sony and Microsoft to determine how big they can make the sandbox’s world when Minecraft arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year…
4J said that both that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Minecraft world were constrained by the save size limits of the consoles, but said that nonetheless both next-gen versions would offer worlds that are “a lot bigger” than those available for last-gen PS3 and Xbox 360.
For those Xbox 360 and PS3 Minecraft gamers hoping to import their world to the next-gen versions of the game, there’s good news. Both Mojang and Microsoft have confirmed that the next-gen console versions of Minecraft will allow cross-generational imports, so you won’t lose your creations by going next-gen
Currently, there is no confirmed release date for Minecraft on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, although the Sony next-gen console version and Vita versions both have a Q2/Q3 slated release window, meaning they should arrive by September at the latest.
What do you think to the world size limits for next-gen Minecraft? Will you be going next-gen, or is your crafting strictly PC based?
