Minecraft is one of the most successful games of all-time. The game is continually updated with new content that keeps players coming back for more. One thing we haven't seen is a true sequel, which is usually a given for successful games. According to a Game Informer interview with Minecraft’s creative director Saxs Persson, it seems unlikely that that sequel will ever come.
“I cannot imagine there will ever be a Minecraft 2. We've done a lot of soul searching. Unequivocally, we're the Minecraft studio, and we've chosen to embrace that. But we have, over time, realized how flexible the envelope of Minecraft really is ... We've always been passionate about making more than a single game, but we never wanted to do a sequel. We're much more interested in taking that spark of creativity and applying it to other genres within the universe of Minecraft.”
