Minecraft is one of the most popular games on the planet and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. The game has multiple versions, and they differ from one another in key areas.

The two broad variations are the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition. The Bedrock Edition is available on consoles and also forms the base for Minecraft Pocket Edition for handheld devices (now known only as "Minecraft").

The game was released on the Microsoft Store after the franchise and Mojang were acquired by Microsoft.
