Minecraft is coming to China

Hello!



Today were proud to announce an exclusive agreement to license our Pocket and PC editions of Minecraft to a NetEase, Inc. affiliate in mainland China. The plan is to develop a version of Minecraft tailored for the Chinese market. It probably wont affect most of you, seeing as youre probably not based in China.



But still, this is significant news and significant news requires significant quotes, so here are two. One from our CEO, and one from NetEases.



Well always embrace opportunities to bring Minecraft to new players around the world, widening our community, and giving us a new perspective on our game, said Jonas Martensson, CEO of Mojang, creators of Minecraft. NetEase understand our long-term vision for Minecraft and support Mojangs ideals, so were delighted to have them on board. We look forward to welcoming Chinas builders and adventurers to the world of Minecraft.



We are excited to bring Minecraft to Chinese audiences, and expect our large online community to embrace this preeminent game, said William Ding, CEO and founder of NetEase, Inc. With our deep understanding of the Chinese market and our ability to successfully launch world-renowned online and mobile games, we offer a strong platform for the introduction of Minecraft to Chinas vast user base. We believe this cooperation could leverage the strengths of both Mojang and NetEase, as well as provide the worlds largest audience with a superior user experience.



See you soon, China-based Minecrafters! Welcome!
