Microsoft pulls 'Minecraft' for Apple TV due to low demand

You probably didn't have a hankering to build Minecraft worlds on your Apple TV, and Microsoft has quietly acknowledged that reality. The company recently started notifying players that it had stopped updating and supporting the Apple TV version of the game on September 24th in order to "reallocate resources to the platforms that our players use the most." To phrase it differently, there weren't enough people playing to justify the investment. If you made any Minecraft purchases for Apple TV within 90 days of the original announcement, you can ask for refunds.
