Daniel Kaplan of the Mojang team has published a blog post outlining a slew of upcoming changes to Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and many exciting new features are seemingly to come including the ability to generate much larger worlds. Other announced changes include better overall AI for the game, an updated inventory, and “a bunch of other things.” As you can see in the screenshot after the break, it appears as if Mojang intends to bring the wolves/dogs we’ve known from the PC version of the game over to mobile devices as well.
We’re working on restructuring a lot of code to allow significantly bigger worlds in future updates. We’re also updating the AI, inventory, and a bunch of other things. Unfortunately we don’t have a release date yet, but so far, everything is going to plan.
Kaplan also notes that the Pocket Edition side of Minecraft Realms–the in-house online matchmaking platform and server host–will be put on pause as of March 1st. The team at Mojang is focused on making sure this feature is done well on PC before moving to finish out Pocket Realms.
