Retail version of Minecraft for Xbox 360 delayed

Apr 14 // Harry Monogenis    @GlitteryCrumpet

Not too long now

Minecraft on the Xbox 360 is currently the highest grossing Xbox LIVE Arcade game out there and, nearly a year after its release, is still one of the most played games on Xbox LIVE -- outdoing most retail games when it comes to online activity.

Given all the success, it was hardly surprising to hear that a retail version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was to be released by Microsoft, 4J Studios, and Mojang. A disc-based Minecraft game for Xbox 360 is still happening, it's just we're going to need to wait a little while longer.

Larry Hryb has posted an update on the game, stating that, "In order to include the very latest content, the retail version for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has been delayed until June 4 (US)."

No news yet if other regions, which had been given an "early June" launch date, will also be receiving a delay.
