One of the news stories that got lost in the mix during last week’s E3 was the fact Minecraft will be headed to the Xbox One. With that bit of news, many Xbox 360 players have been understandably worried all of the progress they have made will have been for nothing considering the Xbox One won’t offer backwards compatibility. But Minecraft’s Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios is currently in discussion with Microsoft Studios to allow players to transfer their save files over to the Xbox One.
News of the discussion came from Microsoft’s Phil Spencer’s Twitter account, which was in response to an earlier report saying the Xbox One edition of Minecraft would be a “new product,” and wouldn’t allow for saves to transfer from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One. News of the Xbox One version of Minecraft possibly supporting save file transfers isn’t exactly the confirmation Minecraft fans have been waiting for, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction considering just how huge of an impact Minecraft has made on the Xbox 360.
