Minecraft Creator Excluded from 10 Year Anniversary Event Because of His Opinions

Microsoft is excluding Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, the creator of Minecraftfrom a big anniversary event planned for the game next month.

Ever since he sold Minecraft to Microsoft – Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, the creator of Minecraft, has become something of a shitposter on Twitter.

Microsoft recently removed blurbs mentioning Persson from the latest build of Minecraft, and now they’re excluding him from a big event focused on the game.

The game is nearing its 10th anniversary, a milestone Microsoft is intending to celebrate, and we’ve now learned (via Variety) that Microsoft is not including the game’s creator in the event, which is planned for May 17th.

“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” a Microsoft representative said. His opinions and statements have been somewhat divisive, but they are just that – his words.

The event will reportedly look at the “past, present and exciting future of the decade-old franchise.”

Despite the removal of blurbs mentioning Persson from Minecraft and the exclusion of him from this event, Notch is still listed as the creator of Minecraft in the game’s credits.
