Sad news today if you own Minecraft on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, or Wii U, as the most recent update for the game will be the last. 4J Studios, the company the developed the game for consoles way back when it was released a few years ago, announced that The Nightmare Before Christmas Mash-up Pack they released on Tuesday will be the last update for the game, as they’ve packed up all their dev kits and posted a tweet letting owners know they were done.

The company made no mention about the servers or the upkeep or management moving forward, which for us means they will probably keep maintaining them as long as there’s a large enough audience still playing the game on those consoles to justify it. So, on the one hand, you’re getting no more updates for that version of Minecraft, but on the other hand, it’s not going away for now.
