Xbox One owners can expect to play Minecraft on their consoles very soon, Microsoft Games Vice President Phil Spencer has said.

Speaking to IGN, he noted that while the actual release date was still up in the air and was down to developer 4J Studios, the game was nearing completion.

They control the [release] date of [Minecraft], but I’ll tell people that we’re getting really close.

Spencer also noted that he’d been hearing positive things about the quality of the Xbox One port.

I talked with Notch last night, and they’re really excited about the quality.
