Mojang Studios is rumored to be working on yet another Minecraft spin-off game, which isn’t Minecraft Legends or Minecraft Dungeons.
The new rumor comes courtesy of journalist and industry insider, Jez Corden. During a recent episode of The Xbox Two Podcast, Corden was asked what he expects to come out of Minecraft Live next week. He responded to the fan saying, “I will say, Rand, that they are also working on another Minecraft game, that isn’t Minecraft Legends and isn’t Minecraft Dungeons”.
Unfortunately, that’s all the details Corden has on the third Minecraft spin-off, as he goes on to state that he “has no idea what it is. But I do know that there is another Minecraft spin-off, in development, right now”. Whether or not it will be announced at Minecraft Live is anyone’s guess, but Corden believes it might be a little too early in the development stage for an announcement.
Minecraft Dungeons was the first spin-off title and was released back in 2020. The second spin-off title, Minecraft Legends, was announced during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase earlier this year and is scheduled to release sometime in 2023. Considering Legends is yet to be released, it seems unlikely for another spin-off to be confirmed in the same year.
Minecraft Live is set to take place on Saturday, October 15th, and Mojang Studios have gradually been revealing the three mobs fans can vote for during the event. The winner of the 2022 Mob vote will be added into Minecraft in the next major content update, which is also expected to be shown during the event.
Last year’s Minecraft Live event gave fans a look at the 1.19 update, otherwise known as ‘The Wild Update’. After being announced in October of 2021, the update was then released in June of this year. As is tradition with Minecraft Live events, fans will likely receive the very first look at the 1.20 update during this year’s showcase.
Fans can also vote between three new mobs, the Rascal, Sniffer, and Tuff Golem. Voting opens on October 14th and can be done via a special Bedrock server, the Minecraft Launcher, and minecraft.net. Make sure to visit the official Minecraft website for more details.
