Following the purchase of Mojang, Microsoft left no doubt Minecraft would make its way to Windows Phone. And, not even a month after being snatched up, Mojang has confirmed Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Microsoft’s mobile platform is already being worked on. Now the question is: will it be similar to other Pocket Edition versions already available, or is Mojang going to give the title special treatment?
It shouldn’t be surprising that not even a month after Microsoft purchased Minecraft developer Mojang, there is word that Minecraft: Pocket Edition will find a new home on the Windows Phone platform. “Yes, Minecraft: Pocket Edition *is* coming to the Windows Phone,” tweeted Jens Bergensten, the game’s lead developer. That’s good news for Windows Phone owners, but don’t get too excited just yet. While the port is in running condition,”there’s still much to do before any release,” Bergensten wrote. So far, Bergensten has refrained from speculating any release window or target.
