No MineCon in 2014


Mojang has announced that its own Minecraft convention, MineCon, will be taking a break in 2014, but should be back in 2015.

According to a post by Mojang’s Chief Operating Officer Vu Bui.

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!

As soon as I have confirmed information it’ll be out there. We always announce as soon as we confirm with the venue and have a signed contract, but never before, because we want to make sure we can follow through with the event and we never want people to start planning to attend something that might not happen. So watch out for information in the coming months!

Bui says that Mojang in shooting to hold the next MineCon in the spring of 2015, most likely in London.

Mojang has been holding a Minecraft convention since 2010. The popular events are the source of the coveted Minecraft capes, exclusive personalization items only given to MineCon attendees. The 2013 MineCon was held in Orlando, Fla.
