A new game in the Minecraft franchise has been teased by a notable gaming industry insider. Over the past two years, developer Mojang Studios has slowly expanded the property in new ways. While the original Minecraft remains incredibly popular in its own right, other titles like Minecraft Dungeons and the next Minecraft Legends have started to emerge lately. And while the output of Minecraft Legends set in 2023 is something a number of fans are looking forward to, it looks like it’s not the only new spin-off in the works.
According to journalist Jez Corden, a new Minecraft game that is not related to Legends Where Dungeons is said to be in development at this time. Corden shared this information on the latest episode of the Xbox Two Podcast. Unfortunately, the mere existence of this project is about all we know at this time. Corden doesn’t know what the game will be called, what genre it will be in, or when it might even be announced. Still, this decision wouldn’t come as much of a shock and would result in a spin-off third installment of the series.
One place where this new Minecraft title could be revealed is at Minecraft Live, which is set to take place next weekend on October 15th. This event is where Mojang will reveal new information related to the future of Minecraft. Based on this Corden leak, however, it doesn’t look like Minecraft Live is where this announcement will take place. Corden says this upcoming spin-off might be too early in the development process for Mojang to want to reveal it just yet. As such, assuming this report is accurate, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer than expected to see this game in an official capacity.
