The official launch of the PlayStation 5 console is only months away, and its users will take advantage of enormous benefits. Sony’s next-generation console will make many gamers forget about the PlayStation 4 console forever. And as we know that PS5 will be featuring backward compatibility for a part of the game list for PS4, some gamers are wondering if Minecraft on PS5 is also possible.
Minecraft is an insanely popular sandbox game created 11 years ago. And it’s even in the top 3 best selling games of all time. It has the merit of owning that position having a unique concept and poor graphics. But common sense tells us that there’s no reason for the game to not become available also for PS5. But is that really the case?
Minecraft on PS5 is more complicated than you think
If we look objectively at the situation, chances are 50/50 for Minecraft to arrive on PS5. What makes us doubt the availability of the famous game for Sony’s next-generation console is the fact that Minecraft is owned by Microsoft. ‘So what?’, you might say.
Well, Microsoft will also release a next-generation console by the end of the year, and it’s the successor of Xbox One. Namely Xbox Series X, the console will be a great rival for PlayStation 5. The next-generation console war is imminent, and why would Microsoft allow one of its top games to become available for the big rival console?
But with or without Minecraft, PlayStation 5 is going to be one hell of a console. Here are the full specs:
- CPU: 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz.
- GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz, RDNA 2 architecture.
- RAM: 16GB GDDR6.
- Storage: Custom 825GB SSD.
- Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot.
- Optical drive: 4K Blu-ray drive.
Only time will tell for sure if Minecraft on PS5 will be available. But until that, feel free to relax and wait. You might even play some Minecraft in the meantime.
