Mojang looking at co-publishing other indie titles

Tuesday, 17th May 2011 09:02 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Minecraft developer Mojang has admitted that its looking into the possibility of co-publishing titles from other independent developers.

But business development director Daniel Kaplan has said that its only in the planning stages for now.

“We are in a great spot right now, we can basically do whatever we want to,” Kaplan told GI.biz. “The hardest thing for us right now is to say ‘no’ to all the deals we’re being offered. There are tonnes of opportunities out there for us right now. But we have to wait it out and figure out what’s the best thing for us to do.

“We get requests every week, it’s quite hard to sort them out, to figure out, okay, this is what we’re going to do. If you take one path then you can’t take the other, you know?”

He further added: “We hope to have something out this fall at least, some co-published games.”

Kaplan hinted that the developer may not stay PC-exclusive for too long, saying that the consoles raised “huge possibilities.”

There’s a full interview here.

Mojang is currently working on card game Scrolls for a 2012 launch. It’s also working on the full release of Minecraft, which will launch the same day as Skyrim, November 11.

    Well Notch did say that he didn’t want to work for Valve but that he wanted to BE Valve… guess this is a step in that direction.

    Lol! Notch isn’t a good developer, he just took a good idea (infiniminer) and made it better. Minecraft is still horribly optimized, and all the good updates come from modders who submit their work to him.
