Minecraft. When anyone thinks of Minecraft, they must also think about its creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson. You can’t separate the two, but Notch just stepped down today as lead developer of Minecraft.
He will be taking a short hiatus and focusing his time on a new project. The reins have been passed to Jens Bergensten as the new lead developer of Minecraft.
Markus wrote this on his Tumblr, “We’ve been working together on Minecraft for a year now, and I’m amazed at how much in synch we two are when it comes to how to design the game.” “He’s truly a great person to work with, and I feel very confident handing over the leadership of Minecraft to him.”
So Minecraft fans should breathe a sigh of relief as the game will be falling into good hands.
