After a year of working together on Minecraft, Notch is stepping down from developing Minecraft and giving the reigns to Jens Bergensten. Notch apparently has other projects that need to be worked on at Mojang HQ, like the vacation that he’s taking (and a well deserved one too!). According to Notch’s tumblr he has complete confidence in Jens and says he and Jens are in sync with how to develop the game.
If you recall Jens was the one who brought us potions and he did work on the NPC villages. Hopefully more fun and exciting things will come our way with Jens manning the Minecraft wheel. Oh and Jens, all I want for Christmas from you are Obsidian weapons and tools in Minecraft. PRETTY PLEASE??!!!
