Minecon, the big convention for beautiful blocks, is now Minecraft Live and the first show will take place on October 3.
Mojang’s Sofia Dankis writes on the official blog that while Minecraft Festival is only in 2022, a virtual get together will happen next month. “Minecraft Live is the new version of our annual live show, which has had many names such as MINECON Live and MINECON Earth. Why the name change? Would you ask rap superstar and underrated actor Sean Combs a.k.a P. Diddy a.a.k.a Puff Daddy that? No, you would not.”
“Due to the impact of Covid-19, Mojang Studios has delayed Minecraft Festival until 2022 and will no longer be involved with official community events. Until then, we’re going to bring the party directly to your device and we’ve got all of our usual goodies lined up for you! Join us on Minecraft.net/live for updates, mob votes, news, and delightful banter. Oh, and chickens. Lots and lots of chickens.”
The show promises to “answer pertinent questions about what the rest of Mojang Studios have been working on all year.”
The show kicks off at 6 pm, so get your popcorn ready.
