Mojang’s cancelled collaboration was a shooter
Remember that mysterious external collaboration which Mojang founder Markus “Notch” Persson mentioned recently? Persson told Joystiq it was a first person shooter. No further details were given, but the shelving didn’t come about because the game wasn’t good enough. Mojang just “did not want more external dependencies”, apparently. “The success of Minecraft meant we could focus on projects fully owned by us,” Persson said.
