You might be confused by the existence of two versions of Minecraft on PC, the Java and Bedrock editions. PCGamesN offers a helpful guide to clarify the differences between the two versions. However, if you've paid for one, you won't have access to the other. Which is a little crazy.
Mojang and Microsoft are clearly in agreement as they have announced (thanks to Neowin) the Minecraft Java Edition and Bedrock Edition. This single-purchase edition of Minecraft on PC replaces the separate editions. The game will be available for purchase on June 7 and will be "the standard and only offering of the original Minecraft on Windows PC."
Anyone with either the Java or Bedrock editions of Minecraft will be upgraded to the combined edition. The upgrade is automatic, however it can take up to three days for all eligible players to play the game.
Mojang confirms that otherwise "Java and Bedrock will remain distinct games with their own distinctive features," with the only difference is that you don't have to buy them separately and can access both from the same Minecraft launcher. Good news all-around, really except for those who recently bought both separately. minecraft raiding servers It should make the process of downloading Minecraft much simpler.
