Creator Markus “Notch” Persson has said that his studio, Mojang, will not be developing the game. Instead, a developer that has “done several console games before” will be handling the project, with Persson acting as game designer.
He also says that the Xbox 360 version of the game is not “a straight port”, suggesting that the integration with Microsoft’s Kinect camera may be more than just a gimmick.
Or a gimmick that ruins a perfectly fine game. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
