Minecraft On Windows Phone Now Being ConsideredNovember 18, 2013 No Comments
Previously, as we all may remember the original creator of Minecraft Maekus “Notch” Persson’s silly decision not to support Windows 8 due to the fact that Microsoft’s locked down the OS and required the games to be certified. Not only was the decision silly, it in the long run hurt them from obviously making money on Microsoft’s growing Windows platforms. See the previous tweets below:
Recently, a Minecraft: Pocket Edition developer named Jeb_ took to Reddit to answer community questions before the MC:PE panel at Minecon this Saturday.
User joshlalonde was so bold enough to inquire about the status of a Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone version of the game. Take a look below:
I was just wondering maybe if Jeb would be more open-minded and create a Windows RT/Windows Phone set of MCPE apps. Notch was quick to shoot this one down, but his reasoning was biased and had no actual reason; iOS is a closed platform so he has no excuse. I would love to be able to play Minecraft on the go. There would definitely be a market for it. Unfortunately, all we have are 3rd party Minecraft look a likes which lack survival mode or any of the features of Minecraft. Thanks for considering!
