Best answer: For now, no. When we asked Minecraft Earth creative director Jesse Merriam, he said definitively that Minecraft Earth is only coming to iOS and Android devices.

Why Minecraft Earth isn’t coming to Windows 10 devices
Minecraft Earth is an upcoming augmented reality game from Microsoft, built in a similar vein to Pokemon Go. In Minecraft Earth, players will partake in augmented reality adventures, able to explore miniature Minecraft-style worlds full of blocks for crafting and building.
To participate in the augmented reality game, Minecraft Earth will utilize the camera on an iOS (10+) and Android (7+) device. Minecraft Earth is constructed from the ground up using Android’s ARCore, and Apple’s ARKit augmented reality frameworks, which Windows platforms currently do not support.
Minecraft Earth Creative Director Jesse Merriam told us that at present, Minecraft Earth is planned only for Android and iOS due to the AR framework dependencies.
Does this mean that Minecraft Earth may never appear on HoloLens or Windows 10 devices? It’s hard to say, but considering Microsoft is pioneering in the augmented reality space with HoloLens, it’s a little hard to believe that any future possible consumer-ready augmented reality product from Microsoft wouldn’t support this game, considering how popular it’s likely going to be. We’ll have to wait and see.
