Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition saves will transfer to Xbox One version

Save data for the Xbox 360 edition of Mojang's Minecraft will transfer to the forthcoming Xbox One version of the game, Microsoft's head of Xbox Phil Spencer confirmed today.

"After months of teaming up with Mojang, we can confirm that Minecraft [Xbox 360] Edition will save transfer to Xbox One Edition," Spencer said on Twitter, promising "more news soon" about the console-to-console transfer. Minecraft for Xbox One was announced at last year's E3 and is expected to be released this year. Discussion about Xbox 360 to Xbox One save transfers has been going on since last summer.

Mojang has similar plans to support transfer of Minecraft saves from the PlayStation 3 version to the PlayStation 4 version.

Microsoft announced earlier this month that the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft has sold more than 12 million copies.
