(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Mojang and 4J Studios’s smash hit, Minecraft, is slated to be released this month, though a specific release date has yet to be announced.
There has been many different rumors swirling the Internet, with some claiming the game will be delayed a month and others speculating that it will hit shelves in a couple of weeks.
One Minecraft fan, RoosterRider80, recently posted a photo of a list of upcoming Xbox One releases in a Minecraft forum, revealing that the block building game will launch on August 19th.
“Stopped in at gamestop today.. they printed me out a copy of upcoming releases and check it out,” says RoosterRider in a forum post. “According to the person at gamestop they should have the disc version for xbox one on August 19th.”
However, a PSVita TV ad was spotted last week in the UK, advertising the handheld console’s Minecraft release as September, which does not align with Mojang’s announcement of an August date.
Minecraft’s developers have not commented on any rumors concerning a launch date, though recently 4J Studios gave an update on the game by posting to Twitter, “We’re still fixing #MinecraftXbox1, #MinecraftPS4 and #MinecraftPSVita bugs. We’ll let you know when we hand over to the Cert testing teams!”
