Minecraft is headed to the Apple TV


Microsoft has worked to bring Minecraft to practically any platform you can think of, and now you can add another to that list: Apple TV. Apple revealed on stage at its fall Mac event that the game will soon be available on its set-top box.

No timeframe was given for launch, but it looks like Minecraft is certainly determined to inhabit anything that can play games. Given that Minecraft is already available for iOS with its Pocket Edition, it's likely that the Apple TV version will be very similar. However, it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out.

While some Microsoft faithful might jeer at the thought of another Microsoft-owned property heading to an Apple platform, it's hard to argue with Minecraft's multi-platform success so far.
