(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Minecraft: Pocket Edition is heading to Windows Phones, though a release date has not been announced.
Mojang lead developer Jens Bergensten confirmed the news last week via Twitter, stating:
“Yes, Minecraft: Pocket Edition *is* coming to the Windows Phone! The port runs already, but there’s still much to do before any release.”
Bergensten noted that the Microsoft edition was already being worked on before the company purchased Mojang last month for $2.5 billion.
Currently the Pocket Edition of the popular block building game, which launched in 2011, is only available for Android and iOS. To date the PE version has sold more than 21 million copies, with the PC and Mac versions surpassing 16 million.
