Minecraft is a deceptively massive game, and as such practically requires its own separate event to update the community on everything they need to know about Minecraft. To achieve this, Mojang Studios hosts their own Minecraft event, which showcases all the latest news and announcements for Minecraft and Minecraft Dungeons. Today, it was revealed that Minecraft Live is officially returning for 2021, continuing a livestreamed format instead of an in-person event.
Minecraft Live 2021 officially airs on Oct. 16, 2021, and will feature interviews with Mojang team members and community members, exclusive reveals and announcements for the future of Minecraft, the latest mob vote, and much more. We don't have exact details yet (of course), but we're expecting Minecraft Live to be packed with content to excite fans, and likely new information on the Caves and Cliffs Update.
You can keep track of Minecraft Live details on the official Mojang Studios website, but rest assured that we'll be covering every aspect of the event right here. Minecraft Live 2021 will reveal the future of the greatest game ever made, and may even show us the inspiration for the next line of best Minecraft toys and gifts.
