Minecraft remains one of the most played games of all time. Becoming one of the biggest IPs in gaming and entertainment. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this legendary game an event will be held, but the creator Markus Persson will not be attending.


Markus Persson, better known as Notch, is not invited to the event taking place next month on May 17 in Stockholm, Sweden. In a statement given to Variety, a representative from Microsoft explained that Notch hasn’t been invited because of his past statements.

“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” said the quote from Microsoft.

Minecraft's developer, Mojang, was sold to Microsft back in 2014. Since then Notch has become more controversial, voicing negative statements that some find offensive on Twitter. Mojang and Microsoft have distanced themselves from Notch in response to these comments. With the new patch removing Notch's name from appearing in the game's opening menu.
