Phil Spencer - 'I don't know if making Minecraft 2 makes sense'

[/img]Phil Spencer has stated that he is unsure whether Microsoft should be releasing a sequel to Minecraft.

The head of Xbox was a guest on the IGN podcast and was asked if Microsoft was considering working on a second Minecraft game following its acquisition of Mojang.

“I don’t know if Minecraft 2… if that’s the thing that makes the most sense,” Spencer replied.

"The community around Minecraft is as strong as any community out there. We need to meet the needs and the desires of what the community has before we get permission to go off and do something else.

"It doesn’t mean that everything we’re going to do is going to map to 100% of their acceptance, because I don’t know if there is any topic where 100% of people agree.

“But we look at job one as to go out and meet the needs of the Minecraft community first, and then we can think about ways that we can actually help grow it. That’s our sole focus.”

Mojang confirmed in mid-September that Microsoft was purchasing the studio and Minecraft for $2.5 billion.

Spencer later sought to reassure fans of the game on other non-Xbox systems that they will continue to be supported.

It doesnt make sense… There is no reason too… All you have to do is just keep adding stuff to it and update it.

Add mod packs to the Xbox versions!

Yes! We need mod support.

As long as Microsoft doesn’t make any ridiculously stupid updates to it, I’m fine. No point on creating another game when this one will continue to sell.
