Minecraft: Pocket Edition getting 'significantly bigger'

Minecraft: Pocket Edition

The mobile version of Minecraft — the Pocket Edition — is undergoing some big changes.

"We’re working on restructuring a lot of code to allow significantly bigger worlds in future updates," Daniel Kaplan of developer Mojang wrote in a blog post.

"We’re also updating the A.I., inventory, and a bunch of other things. Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date yet, but so far, everything is going to plan."

Mojang will also be adding new animals, such as the wolf in the screenshot shown here.

The Pocket Edition has sold more than 10 million copies on iOS and Android. It costs $7 on either app store.

The developer also announced that it's halting its Pocket Realms service, currently in beta, on March 1 until it gets the release of PC Realms off the ground.

"Once that’s done, we’ll be in a better place to work on Pocket Realms and make it as good as it possibly can be, which will be later this year," Kaplan wrote. "We’re not sure how long the service will be down for, but we’ll update you as soon as normal service resumes."
