Minecraft Finally Getting a Native Port for Current-Gen Consoles

After years of waiting, it seems that Minecraft, the best selling game of all time, will finally be receiving a native upgrade for current-generation consoles. With over 238 million copies sold, the popular creativity-focused survival sandbox has been a staple for gamers across various platforms, but has yet to receive a dedicated port for current-gen consoles.

Recently, the German game ratings board (GSK) published a new listing for Minecraft on the Xbox Series consoles, suggesting that the long-awaited upgrade is on its way. This listing was later followed by an update from the ESRB, providing further evidence of a Series X|S version of the game.

Currently, Minecraft runs at just 1080p on the Xbox Series X, as it was never enhanced for the now-last-gen Xbox One X. Additionally, the promised ‘Super Duper Graphics Pack' and ray tracing mode have yet to materialize. Therefore, the Series X|S upgrade is highly anticipated by fans who have been waiting for these promised features.

The outlook for the port is positive, with hopes that it will include the long-awaited enhancements and features that have been missing from the console version. It remains to be seen whether a PlayStation 5 version will also be released.

As fans eagerly await the release of this native port, the Minecraft community is buzzing with excitement and anticipation. Will the upcoming upgrade live up to expectations? Only time will tell.
