Minecraft has sold over 144 million copies as of the beginning of this year, and currently features cross-play with every other current-gen console except for Sony, though that may change in the future. Mojang recently announced Minecraft Dungeons, an action-adventure game set to release on PC sometime in 2019. Another Minecraft console bundle released earlier this year that featured Minecraft: Story Mode, an adventure game from the recently shuttered Telltale Games. This bundle was only sold at Wal-Mart and Microsoft Stores, which the new bundle may also only be available at.
