There will be no sequel
Minecraft still dominating, with more than 91 million active users each month, with over 150 million copies sold.
Microsoft don’t want to force people to move from the original game to a supposed sequel, much less when, according to themselves, ‘Minecraf 2’ can already be created with the original game itself. This is what Chiang has said in an interview: “This is why all the updates are free, we do not want to force players to move from ‘Minecraft 1’ to ‘Minecraft 2.’ We simply want you to enjoy ‘Minecraft’ And there are other ways to expand and offer more meaning to a videogame, much better than simply launching another sequel in the style of what other licenses and franchises do. ” Personally, I’ll be very honest: if this means that they will continue to take care of the game for several more years in the same way they are doing now … it seems fantastic. I wish some sports titles did the same, for example. Although in that case the updates were not free, more than one would not mind paying half of what usually costs the base game, for example.
