Minecraft on Xbox 360 has done quite well so it was almost a given that a new version of the game would get released on Xbox One, the next generation Microsoft Console. Last week there’s has been a bit of confusion regarding the possible save file transfer from the Xbox 360 version to the Xbox One version of the game. Even though it looked like this was going to happen without too many problems, Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer revealed that the idea was “unworkable” in an interview.

Not all hope is lost though: the backlash on the matter probably made Microsoft re-think about the issue. Phil Spencer himself revealed through his official Twitter account that he’s talking with 4JStudios about the possibility of save transfers between the two versions of Minecraft. This is definitely good news for all players who have spent hours upon hours playing the game on Xbox 360 and that certainly don’t want to start all over again with the Xbox One version.
Minecraft is currently available on Xbox 360 as well as on Pc and mobile devices. The Xbox One version will launch sometime after the next generation Microsoft console becomes available for purchase.
