According to Gerstmann, the title is currently in testing and development is going well enough to where it might be shown during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase on Sunday (thanks, Eurogamer).

The game is said to feature a "Steve-like" character that will direct others in battles against Minecraft enemies. It plays in third-person view, and will have a "story and cut-scenes, and all this other stuff."

Gerstmann didn't reveal which studio was working on the game.

The Xbox and Bethesda showcase will kick off June 12 at 10am PT, 1pm ET, 6pm UK.
