Minecraft Dungeons smashed its way onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch this month. As gamers dive through the various maps and collect a small mountain of gems and loot, they’re having tons of fun. There’s also plenty of replayability as players can farm for interesting enchantments, or even complete all 24 of the game’s achievements.
And with all of the ARPG fun to be had, there’s a fair amount of interest in the game. Getting Minecraft Dungeons onto more platforms would follow with how Mojang has treated the main game. So will we see a mobile version of Minecraft Dungeons on iOS or Android devices? Let’s see what the developers had to say about that.
Is there a mobile version of Minecraft Dungeons?
At the moment, no. Minecraft Dungeons has not been ported to mobile devices. This leaves it only out on modern consoles and the PC. So that means players will have to take part in the local or online play on these platforms. The game’s FAQ section also lacks any mention of future plans for a mobile port.
There are now just rumors and hope surrounding the idea of a mobile port. Mojang has already put a lot of effort into Minecraft: Pocket Edition — the mobile-friendly version of the original title — so there’s still a chance. Having the new ARPG on mobile devices would certainly help increase the appeal. So who knows, maybe it will happen.
It did take a while though. The full iOS and Android releases of Minecraft: Pocket Edition took until December 2016 to happen. That means there was a full seven years of gap time between the main PC release and the mobile version. There’s no reason to expect a Minecraft Dungeons mobile port to take anywhere near as long though. If one is in the works, it would take likely a few months at a minimum to wrap up. If there is no mobile version of Minecraft Dungeons in the pipeline, it could be a couple of years before we see it finished.
If you don’t want to wait that long, there are four other platforms to play the game on right now.
