What you need to know

  • Mojang Studios usually hosts an annual event to discuss the future of Minecraft, and what the studio is working on.
  • This year, the newly announced and ambitious Minecraft Festival was postponed, leaving a gap in Mojang Studios' plans.
  • Instead, Mojang Studios will host a Minecraft Live event, entirely online, that will detail the future of Minecraft.
  • Minecraft Live will happen on October 3, and will feature huge announcements and even let players vote on a new mob.

After the postponement of the ambitious Minecraft Festival, players and fans wondered where Mojang Studios' big yearly announcements and feature roadmap for Minecraft would come from. We don't have to worry anymore, as Minecraft Live is happening, and it's happening on October 3, 2020. Minecraft Live will be an online-only event that players and fans can tune into to learn about what's planned for Mojang Studios' expanding portfolio of Minecraft-branded entertainment.

The event will include:

  • Information on future updates, which may include the Mountain Update
  • Huge Minecraft-related announcements
  • A vote on what the next mob in Minecraft should be
  • Other Minecraft-related news

If you're interested, you can bookmark the official Minecraft website for further updates as we get closer to the event, or simply wait until October 3. There should be some good stuff planned, including finally learning what comes after the Nether Update, and possibly info about future Minecraft Dungeons DLC, since Creeping Winter comes on September 8, 2020.
