Wow, Minecraft is about to be ten years old. And notch isn’t part of the celebration

At first I thought I had fallen in love. But no, Minecraft will really be fine ten years old.

At the May 17, 2009 Marcus “Notch” Persson released the game and since then it has become a mass phenomenon.

Microsoft acquired the rights to the game in 2014 for $ 2.5 billion and is celebrating that next month ten year anniversary.

There is something to celebrate.

One is planned Press conference in Mojang’s Stockholm studio, which is about “the past, the equivalent and the exciting future”.

No part of this celebration is Minecraft creator Notch. The reason is its controversial “comments and views”. On Twitter, he has made controversial comments on topics such as race, gender and sexuality in recent years.

Microsoft clearly distances itself from him after an update for the game in March had already removed references to Notch.

“His comments and views are not those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” a company spokesman told Variety.
