My guess would be that, if at all, Minecraft will run unacceptably slowly. As far as I know, there is no native implementation of a JRE on Sailfish. Here's an old and quite defunct thread about this on the Jolla forum. Now, I see no reason why it would not be possible to install the standard Linux versions of OpenJDK or even OracleJRE on Sailfish. Initially, this would enable text-only JAVA apps. Graphics in (Linux) OpenJDK/OracleJRE depends on X11, which SailfishOS does not support out-of-the-box. That could however be fixed using XWayland, which can be installed on SFOS somehow (see e.g. here). However, as we discussed in that same thread, even then there will be no hardware-accelerated OpenGL. In the end, you hit the same limitation as in a Linux-Chroot on Android/LineageOS: since SFOS is still using the same (Android) Kernel, the standard Linux interfaces for HW acceleration are not available, hence programs designed for desktop Linux cannot take advantage of the GPU.
