Minecraft developer Mojang says it's going to bring the mega hit world-crafting game to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita later this year.

"Yes — we are planning to release on PS4 and Vita at around Q2-Q3 this year," wrote a Mojang representative. "We're not able to share more specific dates yet though, sorry. We'd rather be vague than disappoint people! They probably won't be released simultaneously. We're going to release on each format as soon as it's ready."

The developer confirmed that users will be able to transfer game data from the upcoming PlayStation 3 Minecraft edition games. Minecraft was originally set as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 but has been pushed until mid 2014.

Minecraft: PS3 Edition will drop for retail on May 16, while the digital version launches the next day.
