In a recent blog post, Minecraft creator Mojang announced that they will be working on the next Minecraft PS5 console. This comes as a surprise because the company has been giving no indication that they were working on anything other than their latest PC version of the game.
The only sign that there was going to be a new Minecraft for any platform was the unconfirmed news about an Xbox release and now this.
Here, we’ll take a look at the upcoming PlayStation version of the game and we’ll talk about what we know so far.
Is Minecraft on PS4?
Minecraft is one of the hottest games out there. But is it on PlayStation 4? Yes, but in a very different way. The PS4 version has many exclusive features that are not available on other platforms. It also includes all the DLC for this game, while Xbox One and PC players have to buy them separately.
According to a recent interview with Markus Persson, who is better known as Notch, the creator of Minecraft, the PS4 version is not a port. He confirmed that it was built from scratch for this console.
This means that there are no issues with the hardware or bugs associated with a port. The only thing that is different is the UI and texture packs. There are other differences, but unfortunately, he did not explain what they might be.
Additionally, he said that the PS4 version is a much better experience than the Xbox One and the PC versions. If you have a PS4 Pro, you will also have much better graphics.
Is Minecraft on PS5?
A few months ago, Sony made a big splash by announcing that Minecraft was releasing a version specifically for the PlayStation 4. The ad campaign for this was great and it seems like they’re going to do something similar for the PS5.
The Minecraft website is currently set up with an ad that makes it seem like there will be another release of the game on Sony’s latest console. It’s too early to make an accurate prediction, but things are looking promising!
But, you may be asking, “Will Minecraft on PlayStation 5 happen?” This is actually a very interesting question to ask, and one that comes up in many discussions. The answer to this is probably not. Most of the evidence is pointing towards Sony not having plans for another version of Minecraft on the PlayStation 5.
The Minecraft website states that the content of the game is still being worked on, but that it will be released on PS4 sometime in 2019. The game has already been out for over five years now and Club Nintendo released a game based on the game back in 2013, so it’s pretty safe to say that there won’t be another big Minecraft release soon.
However, there is still hope. Maybe PS5 will get the Minecraft treatment after all! We’ll just have to wait and see!
Minecraft PS5 Edition Release Date
The release date of the Minecraft PS5 Edition is not yet confirmed. In April, Sony announced that it would offer a free PlayStation 4 as a reward for players who play the game from now until January 1st, 2019. The company has been silent about an updated release date since then, but this may change as we get closer to next year’s deadline.
Sony didn’t announce any updates on the release date of the Minecraft PS5 edition when they released their new console earlier this year. As it stands, Black Friday is still less than two months away, but there are no further details on when the game might come out.
What we do know about the release date is that Minecraft PS5 Edition is still in development and will be available in 2018. Sony’s Computer Entertainment America confirmed this in an official statement in 2017. “The PlayStation 5 Edition is currently in progress,” they said.” We are excited for fans to explore the world of Minecraft when it will be made available for players this year.”
When it will be made available for players is still up in the air, but it’s safe to say that the game will appear next year, right?

As you can see, there are a lot of big changes and improvements that we’re hoping will be implemented into Minecraft PS5. One of the biggest changes comes in the form of cross-platform play.
We think that this is something that should’ve been introduced back in 2016 with the PS4 Edition, but since they have decided not to do it, they should continue to implement this feature for future PlayStation 5 releases as well.
We’re also hoping that this version of Minecraft will include easier access to user-created mods. We would really like to be able to play this game with all of our friends online and offline whenever we want. This new version is targeting hardcore gamers who are looking forward to playing with friends on multiple platforms.
