Since its release in 2009, Minecraft has become one of the most popular and successful games. A sample of this was the acquisition by Microsoft in 2014, for a figure of 2,500 million dollars.
Despite the passage of time and the emergence of other competitors, Minecraft continues to be just as successful. However, this is not what Markus Persson (known as Notch) thinks, who does not see a prosperous future for the title developed by him.
On his Twitter account, Notch wrote: “I’m not the one to speak ill of the dead, but yes, Minecraft is a bit dead.”
I & # 39; m not the one to speak ill of the dead, but yeah, Minecraft & # 39; sa little bit dead.

His statements drew attention, especially in the field of video game developers and in the industry to which they belong.
Cliff Bleszinski, creator of Gears of wars and now out of the saga, he replied: “it is quite shitty that you talk like that about the company that bought your freedom. It would be like I said GEARZ IS TRASH NOW, no, I want my baby to do well. Dude, seriously, WTF ”.
But Notch did not stop there, responding to those who criticized his comment. “If he’s still alive for you, that’s good! Rocket Arena 3 is still alive for me, “he said in relation to Rocket Arena 3, a mod of Quake 3 which was released in 2000.
The truth is that the numbers show that Minecraft It is far from dying, in fact, according to official figures it has already exceeded 200 million units sold and, according to Microsoft, accumulates more than 140 million monthly players.
