Jens Bergensten, lead designer of Minecraft Pocket Edition for iOS and Android, told iGamer (via Edge): "Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we'll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely." Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition broke day-one XBLA sales records and became "profitable in an hour" following its launch last May, according to series creator Markus 'Notch' Persson. It cleared five million sales in January 2013.
Though the assumption is that Minecraft would receive a PlayStation 3 port, given the timing with PlayStation 4 launching at the end of the year a next-generation release might be possible. A PS4 port may also be easier to develop, since the system is based on x86 architecture as opposed to the PS3's Cell processor. Minecraft sales recently surpassed 20 million copies across all platforms.
