So long, and thanks for the crawling
It’s a bit of good news/bad news today for Minecraft fans. Mojang has announced that Minecraft Dungeons has reached 25 million players worldwide since launching back in May 2020. That’s certainly the good news, but the bad news is that the game will not be receiving anymore content updates.
According to Mojang, Minecraft Dungeons began as a passion project, inspired by their love of classic dungeon crawler games and reimagined as a completely new Minecraft experience. But it was the love of our players that made it grow and thrive, allowing Mojang to continue the adventure and venture further into the Nether, the End, and eventually the mysterious Tower. It exceeded Mojang’s wildest dreams, and it makes them both proud and grateful for having had the pleasure of building a game with a community of Minecraft fans.
Mojang confirmed that the game’s Ver. 1.17 was the final one, and the team has now moved on to new projects that continue to explore experiences in the Minecraft universe. This means that there are no new features or content updates planned for the game. Mojang does intend to continue bringing new experiences to the Minecraft universe and give their team the freedom to keep exploring the types of games they’re passionate about.
