Will Minecraft Windows 10 work on Windows 11?

As we’ve already mentioned, we haven’t heard anything specific from developers Mojang yet, we’re assuming that Microsoft won’t gonna lift up the support for Minecraft Windows 10 Edition or set some limitations as of now. Talking about the Minecraft title, it’s one of the most popular sandbox games among the gaming community.

The chances are high that Minecraft won’t be as optimized as the Windows 10 version for the OS 11 right now but it’ll be stable enough to continue for sure. It’s also worth mentioning that Minecraft is capable of running on PS4/PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, iOS, Android apart from Windows 10 with cross-platform support.

So, it’s quite obvious for Microsoft and Mojang to work on the Minecraft Windows 11 compatibility or support segment together. However, some Minecraft players will encounter multiple glitches or hiccups due to the lack of stability patches or optimizations right now on Windows 11. But that should be fixed in the near future for sure.

We’ll also mention that as Windows 11 will support Android apps & games directly on the platform without any third-party involvement, it’ll be easy enough for Minecraft players to continue their gameplay journey using the Android version.

Similarly, Microsoft hasn’t mentioned anything specific about whether the Windows 10 compatible programs or games will gonna have any kind of issues on Windows 11 or not. So, it’s most likely each and every current generation program will definitely gonna work on the next-gen Windows OS without any issue.

But as of now, we’ll have to wait until the official news or multiple leaks come out in the upcoming months on it. Till then you can bookmark this page for further information.
