'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition’ Release Date Potentially Revealed, PS4 And PS Vita Edition Too?

INQ: Minecraft fans have anxiously been awaiting an announcement for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PS Vita releases. Developer 4J Studios has promised that it will let everyone know when the game will be submitted to certification. However, a list of upcoming Xbox One releases obtained by a fan from GameStop should at least give everyone a target release date for the open-world sandbox title. (Minecraft, PS Vita, PS4, Xbox One)

Hope so.

Latest Vita TV adverts say "coming in September" when Minecraft is shown towards the end.

The article shows a image of a GameStop upcoming release sheet for Xbox One DLC, but goes on to state it's a disc release date. Gotta love people who don't fact check.

It was unintentional bad wording on my part. GameStop reportedly told the person who obtained the listing that the retail release would happen the same day.

It's been updated so that point is clearer.

They're saying August 19 for those who would rather not load up the page.

I wouldn't put too much faith in that date. They clearly stated via a Twitter post that they'd let us know once they sent the game to certification teams. They have yet to do that, so there's still a bit of waiting to do.

After a game is sent in to certification teams, it'll take at least a couple of weeks, if not more, before they approve it or deny it. In a lot of cases, they deny the game and the developers have to do more bug fixing before they can send it back to the certification teams. At which point, the process for waiting starts again.

If they send it in for evaluation this week, we could get a release on the 19th, but I'm not holding my breath. The last week of August is probably more likely. If they don't get approval from the certification teams on the first attempt, we may even be looking at a delay going into September.
