Microsoft is making Minecraft available on Xbox One as well as Windows 10 PCs, according to a blog post by Mojang.
Microsoft is giving players the ability to create and manage worlds from scratch and is bringing back Minecraft as a standalone product, the blog post said.
“We’re excited to finally bring Minecraft to Windows 10 and Xbox One, which are both new platforms and worlds for us,” Mojang wrote.
“You can create your own world from scratch with the Minecraft Forge, or connect to Minecraft servers via the Microsoft Azure cloud.”
It’s a departure from the original Minecraft, which was launched on Xbox 360 in 2013.
It was a multiplayer game with a single-player campaign, but it also included an in-game shop, which allowed players to sell items and buy items with real money.
The company’s latest game, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, is a direct response to the demand for an Xbox One version.
Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade has been available for Minecraft for some time, but that service has also been plagued by server issues and was not as robust as Mojang had hoped.
In December, Microsoft announced that Xbox One and Windows 10 players would get to choose between a Minecraft Edition and an Xbox 360 version of the game.
Microsoft also said it would add more “features” to Minecraft, including “better user interfaces, enhanced graphics, and improved network performance.”
Minecraft on Windows 10 was announced last week, but the company has not said when or if those changes will be available.
