Looking forward to expanding your Minecraft experience with the release of Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020? Well, in order to create the very best experience possible, Mojang and Double Eleven have teamed up!
The upcoming action adventure which moves on from everything we know and love about Minecraft to deliver a standalone dungeon crawling experience will hit console and PC in 2020, and today the partnership between Mojang and Double Eleven will ensure that things continue to move along at a rapid pace.
Double Eleven’s role in the development of Minecraft Dungeons is focused around developing the console editions with Mojang, sorting out the content creation and helping develop the game’s underlying online and multiplayer systems. The main goal of this partnership is to create the best possible player experience for the groundbreaking title.
“It’s a real honour to help with the creation of such an exciting, high-profile release as Minecraft Dungeons”, said Lee Hutchinson, founder and CEO of Double Eleven. “This December will mark Double Eleven’s 10th anniversary, and in that time we’ve developed a track record of technical expertise and creativity. This milestone highlights the next phase of the team’s expansion, and we’ve got more exciting announcements still to come this year.”
“We’re thrilled to have found a partner that shares our passion for creating great games, and we’re looking forward to working closely with Double Eleven to bring Minecraft Dungeons to a wide range of platforms,” said David Nisshagen, Executive Producer at Mojang. “We’re excited to watch our passion project continue to grow, and Double Eleven’s expertise and dedication will help us create a high-quality experience for our community.”
With Double Eleven’s past history proving that they know their stuff, recognised for their work as a development and publishing partner for the console releases of Goat Simulator, Prison Architect as well as a co-development partner on Crackdown 3, we can be sure that Minecraft Dungeons is in safe hands. Throw in the small dedicated Mojang team too, and the release of Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC is a highly intriguing affair, giving the chance for us to run through dungeons alone or with friends in order to complete epic quests.
What makes it even better is that us Xbox One gamers will be able to get some simple hands-on time with the beautifully blocky world of Minecraft Dungeons when it launches in 2020 via Xbox Game Pass.
