According to a prominent Xbox insider, Xbox Game Studios and Mojang Studios are working on not one, but two new Minecraft games, presumably derivative in nature, as it is unlikely that Microsoft is about to retire the “Minecraft 2” trigger. The report comes the way of Jez Corden, who does not say much but notes that the information does not come from a single reliable source, but from at least two reliable sources, if not more. Unfortunately, Corden does not doesn’t divulge many details, but it suggests that Mojang has sneakily teased these games in the past.
“There is more Minecraft coming soon,” Corden said. “I know from reliable sources that Mojang has at least two brand new projects that aren’t Minecraft or Minecraft Dungeons, though I have no idea exactly what those games might look like. Maybe we’ll find out that all of those pixel-style art items were actually teases for full-fledged projects…or maybe not. But we can hope.”
The most recent Minecraft the game is from the 2020s Minecraft Dungeonsan action RPG meets a dungeon crawler that failed to critically hit the target and apparently failed to hit the commercial target considering Minecraft is literally the best-selling game of all time. and Minecraft Dungeons is very far from that. That said, Minecraft is Xbox’s most valuable IP, so it’s hardly surprising that it’s looking for Mojang to exploit it, even if the spinoffs so far haven’t been very successful.
All of that said, take everything here with a grain of salt. While Corden has proven reliable and reputable in the past, he’s also been irrelevant in the past. Of course, not only is everything here unofficial, but it’s subject to change.
At the time of publication, none of the parties involved have provided comment on this report. We don’t expect that to change for a variety of reasons, but if it does, we’ll be sure to update the story accordingly. In the meantime, for more coverage on all things Xbox, click here.
