Microsoft Abandons Development Of Minecraft Pocket Edition For Windows 10 Phones
Microsoft Windows 10 users have another thing to worry about now that the development of Minecraft Pocket edition for the handset has been stopped permanently. Numerous issues plagued Windows 10 phones and the handset suffered another huge blow after support for Minecraft Pocket edition was pulled out.
The decision to stop Minecraft Pocket edition was made since providing support to Windows 8.1 and 10 is not economically viable for the company. There are only a handful of active players using these mobile devices. Windows 10 phones only account for about one percent in mobile phone sales in the U.S. according to a report. Not all of those users are playing Minecraft which makes it a dispensable market. This strengthens the decision to halt all support for Windows 10 mobile.
Given these developments, it seems that the Windows on ARM would be receiving the bulk of attention. This operating system will be made available to devices running on Snapdragon 835 processor. Unless the Windows on ARM gains popularity, it appears that Windows mobile phones are going to die out. So far, Windows phones were unable to sustain the same popularity that iOS and Android received.
Minecraft is not the only app to pull out its support for Windows 10. Runtastic, a popular exercise app, also decided to stop Windows 10 support. While this may be sad news for Windows 8.1 and 10 users, Minecraft players could still see upgrades in Windows PC. Minecraft Windows 10 edition will be available in just five days which is one reason why many Windows mobile users are disappointed when the support for the handset was pulled out.
According to Minecraft's FAQ, its main priority lies in developing features that players are expecting to see in the game. At the moment, Minecraft Pocket Edition is still available at the Windows 10 store although users can no longer expect the 1.0 Ender Update or any future updates in their handset.
