Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition released Title Update 7 last month and developer 4J Studios is currently working on a patch to fix bugs associated with the update.
The patch is expected to be released sometime this month but no official release date has been announced.
“We’ve been working on bug fixes for some problems people have found in TU7 [Title Update 7]. A new update with fixes will be released in January,” 4J Studios posted on Twitter.
[adsense250itp]In response to a fan’s question, 4J Studios explained the patch will ensure newly created worlds have a Nether Fortress, Blazes and Nether Wart. Further details on the patch have yet to be unveiled.
Title Update 7 introduced new items, new enemies, animal breeding, experience points and enchanting to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. More details on the latest Minecraft update can be found here.
Despite being over a year since it first released, Minecraft remains insanely popular. Along with frequent developer updates, the game’s ongoing success has been fueled by a great deal of recent success.
Before the end of 2012, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition surpassed the five million mark in sales. Mojang, the original developers of the game for PC and mobile devices, previously revealed Minecraft: Pocket Edition for mobile devices had sold over five million copies and sales for the PC version were over eight million. The PC version of the indie sandbox game also sold over 450,000 copies on Christmas day, bringing the total sales of Minecraft across all platforms around the 20 million mark.
In addition, Minecraft was the subject of a documentary from 2 Player Productions that debuted on Xbox Live last month. Minecraft: The Story of Mojang was met with positive reviews from the gaming community and could be the reason behind the Christmas sales. The DVD or DRM-free digital download is available for purchase now.
