Minecraft is playable on PS5 through the PlayStation 4 version, so it's not as if PlayStation players have been left out of the Minecraft experience on the latest console from Sony. However, in recent weeks, there has been a growing buzz among gaming enthusiasts regarding the availability of Minecraft for free on the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console. Minecraft stands tall as a sandbox favorite, but does it offer cross-platform play across PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and mobile?
In the world of gaming, Minecraft has become a household name, captivating players of all ages with its endless possibilities and creative gameplay. The game provides players with a chance to explore and build to their heart's content. There are a few games that draw out a similar level of creativity and imagination.
However, despite its popularity, Minecraft on PS5 does not have its own dedicated edition. Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed that Sony was reluctant to send the team a PS5 dev kit, which is why Minecraft does not have a native PS5 edition. Spencer even mentioned that he believes Sony could have easily provided the dev kit to Microsoft, just like any other publisher.
