Xbox Boss Teases New “Future Work” On Minecraft

Xbox boss Phil Spencer spent a part of his day today with the team at Minecraft developer Mojang, he said on Twitter. While he didn’t get into specifics about what he saw, Spencer said it was a “Great day with the team [at] Mojang seeing the future work on Minecraft.”

He added: “Very cool to see the new ideas the team has come to life.”

Microsoft acquired the Minecraft franchise and developer Mojang in September in a big deal worth $2.5 billion. Since then, the massively popular sandbox game has gotten even bigger, with Microsoft announcing 121 million sales and 55 million monthly players earlier this year.

The game is regularly supported with new DLC and updates, including Power Rangers content that came out at the end of March. More recently, Microsoft announced a real-money marketplace for Minecraft, while the game is coming to another platform, Nintendo Switch, in May.

In August 2015, Spencer talked about his broad vision for Minecraft, saying Microsoft has no immediate plans to make Minecraft 2, though it could happen eventually.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
