Minecraft Pocket Edition not yet coming to Windows 10 Mobile

Minecraft error 5

Minecraft for Windows 10 Mobile is somewhat of a curious case. Initially, fans had reason to be excited due to the discovery of a detail in the changelog for the latest patch that pointed to Mojang including support for the platform for its popular game.

But now, the 1.0.3 beta build of the game received a changelog that doesn’t include that information. This comes as quite a disappointment since the original version of the game was released on platforms other than Windows Mobile.

The game supported the PC version of Windows 10 from the start, but many were hoping for extended support so that Windows 10 Mobile users could also get in on the fun. Since this change was only speculated and not actually confirmed by anyone at either Mojang or Microsoft, a lot of people took it as a sign that things weren’t going to as great as everyone would have hoped.

If the Windows 10 Mobile support were to come through, it would be under the Pocket Edition version of the game. The Pocket Edition is the version of Minecraft dedicated to mobile devices. Android and iOS users are already having a blast thanks to the company behind Minecraft supporting their respective platforms.

Even though there has been nothing yet about this, there is still time left with which Mojang could add Windows 10 Mobile support. It would surely boost the overall value of Windows 10 Mobile as a platform, as Microsoft’s mobile efforts in this department aren’t looking so great at the moment.

In fact, the Windows developer’s mobile operating system has been on a constant downhill tumble for a while now and many are wondering how long will it be until it is terminated. This may very well be the reason why no support was added in the first place, as it would be a tad impractical to add support for a platform that is about to be discontinued.
