Microsoft is withdrawing support for its popular âMinecraftâ game from Apple TV given the small number of people who have accessed the game through Apple TV.
The decision went into effect on September 24, but no one really seemed to notice until this week, The Verge reported on Wednesday.
“As of September 24, the Apple TV version of ‘Minecraft’ will no longer be updated or supported. We thank the Apple TV community for their support, but we need to reallocate resources to the platforms our players use the most. . We will give a full refund for all purchases made within the last 90 days, âthe in-game message notes.
Since not many people play it on the platform, Microsoft and the âMinecraftâ team decided to shut down Apple TV and put more people on its ongoing and successful projects.
The game has also been removed from the Apple App Store.
âIt doesn’t make a lot of sense for developers to put resources into a version of the game that few people play,â a report from VentureBeat said.
To make games compatible with Apple TV, developers must integrate support for “Siri Remote” – which helps users control their Apple TV with touch and voice.
Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the game’s debut on Apple TV in 2016, revealing that the game will run on its updated gaming media and devices with the aim of bringing a disruption similar to mobile gaming in the future. family rooms.
