No Minecon in 2014, Mojang aiming for spring 2015 for next event

Posted on August 25, 2014 AT 06:09am

Mojang has announced that there will be no Minecon event in 2014, with the developer announcing that it hopes to have an event early next year.

For those who don’t know, Minecon is a convention aimed at fans of Minecraft. The first Minecon was held back in 2010, and every year since then an event has been held, until this year.

“I’ve been getting a lot of questions about MINECON lately, because before this time last year everyone knew the date and location and ticket info for MINECON 2013,” Mojang’s Chief Operating Officer wrote. ”While we don’t have a set date for the next MINECON just yet, I wanted to let everyone know that it won’t be until some time in 2015. I’m shooting to have it in the spring in London!

“While we’d love to do MINECON every year and it’s the only event we do as a company, we want to make sure we can give it the attention it needs, and that means that springtime next year will work best!”
