At Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference earlier today, Mojang introduced Microsoft Realms, that will enable players across Windows 10, Xbox One, iOS, and Android to play Minecraft together.
It will also be VR compatible.
Several add-ons are also coming to Minecraft: Pocket Edition after this year, including flexible villager AI and city texture packs.
Based on the Minecraft team, this is actually the “first step towards a completely moddable Minecraft.”
Minecraft Realms Cross-Play across all platforms certainly will be available next year for Consoles, and is available on Windows 10 and mobile.
