Minecraft looks set to finally get a native current-gen upgrade

Minecraft is by far the best selling game of all time, with the creativity-focused survival sandbox selling 238 million copies. Despite this, the team at Mojang have yet to upgrade the game for current-generation consoles, with the title only available via backwards compatibility. This looks to finally be changing – at least according to one ratings board.

As discovered by Twitter user ‘Andrew Marmo’ the German game ratings board (GSK) recently published a new listing for Minecraft on the Xbox Series consoles – suggesting that the game will soon get its long-awaited current-gen upgrade.

While yet to be officially announced, this update all-but-confirms that a current-gen version of Minecraft will soon be upon us.

Currently, the game runs at just 1080p on the Xbox Series X due to the fact that the Minecraft was never enhanced for the now-last-gen Xbox One X. Additionally, the previously-announced ‘Super Duper Graphics Pack’ never came to fruition – nor did the advertised ray tracing mode.

With the current version of Minecraft being so far behind, this Series X|S upgrade can’t come soon enough. Hopefully it includes all of the aforementioned features. We will have to wait and see.

KitGuru says: Are you bothered by the current version of Minecraft on consoles? What do you expect from this upcoming upgrade? What would you look forward to more, 120fps support or ray tracing? Let us know down below.
