WOWZAS: Looks like people's predictions were on the money!


But what does this mean for Minecraft PS5? Well, unfortunately, with no mention of the game or footage, we don't have a lot to work with this time around.

When could we hear more though? We're getting closer and closer to people getting their hands on with the next-gen console, and we're seeing more footage than ever before.

We could well see something in the coming months, but we'll have to keep our ear pressed closely to the ground!

Minecraft PS5 Edition?

We got a new edition of the game, labeled as a PS4 edition, that allowed crossplay and cohesion into the Bedrock Edition. Will we get the same thing for PS5?

Well, maybe.

HELLO THERE: Who doesn't love stumbling into a village?

The conflict comes from the fact that Microsoft owns Minecraft, and given its popularity might hold off on a PS5 Edition to try and convince gamers to switch to the new Xbox Series X when both the next-gen consoles drop later this year.


Will Minecraft be on the PS5?

That shouldn't worry you too much though, as Minecraft will definitely be on the PS5.

Thanks to backward compatibility you will still be able to load up the PS4 Edition and enjoy Minecraft on your next-gen console.

What about Minecraft Dungeons?

The latest adventure in the Minecraft universe, Minecraft Dungeons takes you out of the sandbox and into a dungeon crawler style game.
