Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has revealed that players will be unable to transfer their saves between Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and the recently announced Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.

However, Spencer did promise that the Xbox One Edition will include bigger worlds and the ability to play your creations across multiple devices. “No, it’s a new product on Xbox One. We’re actually updating it in pretty significant ways for the new platform. Bigger worlds, which don’t translate between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One,” he told OXM.

He may have spoken a little too soon however, as 4J Studios has confirmed it is in talks with Mojang and Microsoft about the possibility of allowing save transfers. One side says one thing and the other side says something different, guess we’ll have to wait for the final official word to be 100 percent sure either way.

“We’re seeing tremendous usage of Minecraft on the system, so we wanted to make sure it was one of the things that were there for people to go and create on day one. Obviously this is Mojang’s game, and I’ve had good discussions with Notch about where he sees this franchise going, trying to create a more connected Minecraft world where your creations can go with you from device to device, but I haven’t talked to them about where they are on that path,” Spencer concluded.
