Minecraft dropping support for last gen consoles following next update

As Minecraft players on PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and Wii U now represent under 5% of the active community playing the game, Mojang has confirmed that following the upcoming Update Aquatic, support for those old-gen consoles will be nixed to focus on current platforms.

"Although we’d love to keep bringing new content to all our players forever, the older generation of consoles now make up less than 5% of our active players," the developer noted in an update on its blog, "so we’ve made the difficult decision to focus our efforts to support players where they play Minecraft the most and where we plan to add new features."

While the Update Aquatic, with dolphins and other underwater treats, will still be heading to PS3, Vita, X360 and Wii U, it'll mark the final update for Minecraft on older platforms. Meanwhile, the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 and mobile versions will be moving to the new Bedrock Engine where the Update Aquatic content will be released.

If you're playing the Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition, there's no need to change anything, as the game will still be supported in the same way it always has."

Well I'm kinda happy with it. Minecraft was on of my first games on PS3 and I don't like it anymore, but they keep adding those DLC trophies that make me like the game even less than what I used to. Knowing that after this update (and probably DLC trophies) I will be able to delete the game makes me happy because I will be able to finnaly end and 100% (again) Minecraft

This is actually kind of a pleasant surprise in some ways.

 

I thought for sure they were dropping support for Sony consoles in general after Sony screwed them on the "better together" update. Considering it's been almost a year since that happened with no major content releases, I honestly thought we were done getting content. Now, not only are we not done but last gen is getting one final huge expansion? That's a nice surprise for me.

 

It's inevitable that ps4 will get dropped long before the game stops making content since the "Better together" update makes ps4 the smallest player base by a mile... But it's nice to know that isn't anytime soon.

 

Now if they'd just give us the dual wielding and shields that they've been promising for years, I'd be set.

As long as the almost endless dlc trophies come to an end, I’m happy. I don’t wanna play Minecraft anymore, I’m so fed up 🤢

 

After me and the Mrs played Terraria, we never looked back. Minecraft is just... Well, I had enough. So THANK YOU SO MUCH for ending support on last gen consoles 🙏
