Minecraft is reportedly getting a native PS5 version

Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a native version of Minecraft for PlayStation 5.

That’s according to PlayStation Game Size, a social media account that regularly reveals games early by trawling the backend of Sony’s console store.

Currently, only the PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft is playable on PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility. The Xbox version was recently updated to support 4K, though users have long been waiting for an optimised current-gen version.

Last year an Xbox Series X|S version of Minecraft appeared on various ratings boards. However, in a statement to VGC, Microsoft claimed the listings were part of standard approvals it regularly goes through with various rating boards.

One feature that could potentially be supported in an optimised version of the game for current-gen consoles is ray tracing, which Microsoft has been teasing since before the platform’s launch in 2020.

In 2021, developer Mojang inadvertently included prototype code for ray tracing support on Xbox consoles in a preview build available to Xbox Insiders, before quickly removing it.

“This early prototype code has been removed from Preview and doesn’t signal near future plans to bring raytracing support to consoles,” it said at the time.
