Update Aquatic Is The Last For Minecraft Wii U Edition

Update Aquatic Is The Last For Minecraft Wii U Edition”

Though there was some question as to whether or not Minecraft's incoming Update Aquatic would make it to legacy consoles, Microsoft has confirmed that it will.

Microsoft has said that it's giving up on those older versions as those playing them make up a disproportionately tiny portion of the player base.

After years of continued updates and support, the Minecraft team has announced that the coming Update Aquatic content drop will be the last significant update to hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U versions of the game.

In a post on its website, the developer noted that while it wants to continue supporting all platforms, the older consoles make up less than 5 percent of Minecraft's active user base, which makes it hard to invest resources into keeping these platforms up to date.

Writing in a new blog post, developer Majong revealed that while these versions of the game will benefit from the next major update, the fact they make up less than 5% of the game's player base means they won't be receiving any additional support going forward.

Still, at least this small subset of players will have access to the numerous ocean-themed content arriving as part of the Update Aquatic expansion, which includes everything from a new hostile mob named "The Drowned" and underwater shipwrecks, to pixel art coral and a plethora of mysterious submerged ruins. Xbox One users will have to ensure they have switched over to the Bedrock version, and Switch owners will have to wait for the Bedrock version to become available some time in the near future.
