A few days ago we told you guys about the scheduled Thursday release of Minecraft: Pocket Edition for all Android devices. Well, it’s Thursday and if you’ve been feverishly searching through your Android Market looking for Minecraft PE, you may have noticed it’s nowhere to be found.

So what is up? Well, according one of the game’s developers, Daniel Kaplan, he Tweeted some not so good news for all you Android crafters out there.

Yikes!! We found a nasty bug in Minecraft – Pocket Edition that needs to be fixed before release! Im not sure it will come out today :(

He also went on to tweet some more information regarding which devices will be compatible with the game once it launches.

Minecraft – PE will work on Android 2.2+ but cant promise it will in the future since we are going to add new stuff all the time! We will update the Demo of Minecraft – PE so you can try it out before you buy. But I would recommend a 1ghz+ phone with fast gpu.

So there you have it, folks. Hopefully Minecraft Pocket Edition wont be delayed for too much longer. It’s always possible it could still make its deadline sometime today (cross your fingers) but I don’t want to get your hopes up. Either way, we’ll keep you posted and let you know as soon as it becomes available.
