Minecraft 2 Finally Announced

In a bit of news that surprises no one, Developer Mojang is set to release a sequel to its flagship game, Minecraft.

The news shocked the gaming world but was quickly ignored as the millions of Minecraft players who would be excited by this, went right back to building their red stone powered roller coasters.  Over on Mojang’s official website, the ever popular Dinnerbone had this to say:

Minecraft PC edition is about to hit 10,000,000 sales. I don’t know about you guys but we’re really excited about this milestone in Minecraft history. We decided that this would be the perfect time to announce our next upcoming title ‘Minecraft 2‘.

He then goes on to give us a release window.

Hopefully releasing within the next two months, this 2-years-in-development game will be bringing blocky simulation to the next level.  Whilst based off the original engine, this new version completely overhauls major parts of the game and contains many weeks worth of new content and blocks.

Check out the video preview above and let us know what you think!  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a mine to craft.
