Minecraft on PlayStation 'possible, Wii U unlikely'

Options will be considered when Xbox exclusivity deal ends

Minecraft could make its way to PlayStation platforms, although an appearance on Wii U is highly unlikely, according to Swedish studio Mojang.


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.

Minecraft sales recently surpassed 20 million copies across all platforms.
