Mojang creating three new games, two due this year
Mojang, creators of Minecraft, has revealed that they’re working on three new projects. Interestingly, two of the three will be announced in the first half of this year – it’s possible that they may even see a release in that period.
Of the three projects, one is being headed up by Minecraft lead deseigner Markus ‘Notch’ Persson. However, the game is still in the very early stages of development, as Mojang CEO Carl Manneh explains:
“What it is today, I don’t think he knows himself,” said Manneh. “We certainly don’t. It’s probably going to be a lot of testing and playing around to see what works.”
As for the other two games? They’re still shrouded in secrecy:
“I think that comes with the new games we’re creating,” Manneh continued. “They will have a big impact on Mojang over the next year. I can’t talk about them, because we have NDAs with companies. Otherwise, we want to be very transparent about everything we do, but in this case we can’t.”
