When are Servers Coming to Minecraft PS4?
This answer is now defunct, as of December 10, 2019, PS4 is getting Bedrock Edition Minecraft, and everything that comes with it. I’ve never been more happy to be wrong about a prediction, and I’m glad Sony softened on their position on CrossPlay. I just wish it had happened sooner, and that it didn’t take finding how arbitrary their splitting from shared multiplayer experiences was for Fortnite to get them to begin considering alternatives. My original answer remains below
Short term, there are no plans to do so. PS4 Minecraft is still console-specific, not Bedrock Edition.
Long-term, for Sony to allow Bedrock Edition on their platform, they would need to be willing to let players log into their Xbox Live accounts on their platform, make cross-platform purchases, and allow cross-platform multiplayer. All of those things are the stipulations for having Bedrock Edition on your platform.
Sony’s attitude is that they are 100% unwilling to allow cross-platform because they consider their player ecosystem ‘the best’ and don’t want to dilute that. I wouldn’t hold your breath for this position to change
EDIT: Sony’s position has softened, but only on a game-by-game basis. Right now, they’re experimenting with allowing it on Fortnite, mostly because that’s the game that kind of highlighted how bad their crossplay policy was in the first place. I haven’t heard anything about PS4 getting Bedrock edition, which would require Sony to allow Xbox Live on their platform, if only in a limited capacity. My position is still: Don’t hold your breath.
