With MS buying Minecraft for $2.5 Billion, I am hoping one of the first things they do is release a version for the Surface. Would be great to enjoy the same kind of touch interface as iPad has on a Microsoft device. If anyone hears any rumors, etc. please post.
Just to follow up on this there is now a Minecraft for Windows 10 available free for existing Minecraft owners. Run great on my SP3 and it is nice to have fully usable touch control on a Windows tablet.
My hope for the application is honestly that the app becomes the go to version for Minecraft. It will need some serious work before then, but the new cross-platform play is encouraging and the app seems to be getting updated faster than the Java version. If this is the version that is played on the HoloLense I think that will nail things down as far as a unified cross-platform app being Microsoft's vision for the games future.
