Minecraft: the first video game for the Xbox 360 has been delayed.
The title has been shelved for another three months after Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson failed to secure the $1 billion (£890 million) Kickstarter funding needed to make it a reality.
“It’s a big disappointment to see it go, especially with the funding that was raised,” Persson told GameSpot.
“There’s no way to see a sequel to Minecraft with this amount of money.”
Minecraft’s publisher, Mojang, has stated that it is working on a sequel, and that it would like to bring the title to “any platform we can”.
“It just seems like a silly project right now,” Personsson said.
“But when we see the amount of time that has been spent on the game, it really doesn’t seem like a bad thing.”
In the meantime, Persson plans to continue working on Minecraft.
“I’m working on it right now.
I’m not going to say what it’s going to be, but it’s really going to focus on the new expansion and getting people playing more.
It’s a really fun game and it’s a lot of fun,” Perssey said.
Minecraft: the Official Site – the official Minecraft website, for PC, Mac and Linux – is still online, and has not been updated since the title was originally launched in 2009.
A date for a future update has not yet been announced.
Minecraft fans, meanwhile, can continue to enjoy Minecraft on the Xbox One.
