Minecraft for Mac and PC will soon have native support for Twitch live streaming, according to news coming out of Minecon 2013 this weekend. Speaking at Minecon 2013 over the weekend, Twitch Marketing Vice President Matthew DiPietro confirmed that this level of functionality would be introduced 'soon'.
"Minecraft has struck a very powerful chord with the Twitch community," DiPietro said.
"Its constantly escalating popularity illustrates that people love to watch video games outside of the headline grabbing eSports titles. Expect a watershed moment for both players and spectators once the ability to easily broadcast gameplay directly to Twitch goes live."
This means Twitch streaming will be available to Minecraft across several non-mobile platforms, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One offering built-in Twitch compatibility.
In September Mojang said that Minecraft had sold over 12 million copies for PC alone. Lifetime sales of the game on multiple platforms are at around 33 million copies. The game is available on mobile devices, Xbox 360, and PC. The game will be on PS4 at launch later this month and within the launch window for Xbox One.
