Minecraft Earth was revealed back in mid 2019 and a portion of the first ongoing interaction was flaunted at WWDC 2019 preceding dispatching in November that year.
The thought was truly slick, bringing Minecraft’s synergistic, innovative play to this present reality with AR yet the truth of 2020 and the pandemic has constrained the finish of the game.
Minecraft shared the news on its blog today (is by all accounts pulled for the present) that Minecraft Earth will close down on June 30, 2021 with the essential explanation being COVID-19 and how it has changed life:
Minecraft Earth was designed around free movement and collaborative play – two things that have become near impossible in the current global situation. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to re-allocate our resources to other areas that provide value to the Minecraft community and to end support for Minecraft Earth in June 2021.
Be that as it may, there is one final update dispatching today with clients having the option to play until June 30:
That said, we still have one update left. Today we are releasing the final build of the game, containing some changes to make your time in Minecraft Earth as fun as possible. We hope these adjustments will allow you to explore, craft, and build more – while staying safe indoors. Starting with today’s update, we are:
- Removing real-money transactions
- Drastically reducing ruby costs
- Including all completed, unreleased content currently in our pipeline
- Reducing time requirements for crafting and smelting
- Replacing unused crafting & smelting boosts with radius boosts of the same level
- Granting a set of Character Creator items to players who sign in between January 5 and June 30
Concerning Minecraft Earth buys, this is what to expect with the closure:
All players with paid ruby adjusts will be allowed Minecoins, which you can use on the Minecraft Marketplace to buy skin and surface packs, maps, and even minigames.
In addition, on the off chance that you’ve ever constructed a buy in Minecraft Earth, you will get a free duplicate of Minecraft (the Bedrock variant) so you can get a new beginning while at the same time getting a few treats from the Marketplace!
The Minecraft group wrapped up with a thank you to every individual who played and made:
That being said, we want to take a moment to thank all of the players and creators that are bringing new adventures, mobs, and free in-game items for the community to enjoy while we finalize our timeline for sunsetting the game. Your feedback and creations brought this game to an entirely different level, from the regular build challenges you absolutely smashed to the incredible builds you shared on social media. We’re eternally grateful for the amazing talent in the Minecraft community. This was not an easy decision, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure you get the most out of Minecraft Earth before it sunsets.
