Minecraft Pocket Edition discontinued, concerns over piracy halted development

mcpe_wolf

Minecraft Pocket Edition expanded Mojang to mobile devices, but today Mojang is severing that tie by discontinuing Minecraft PE. Notch posted on his Twitter account, "Over half of the players of Minecraft PE didn't actually buy the game, and we can't keep paying for it's development." He continued, "So we are shutting down Minecraft PE. It will be removed from the App Store in a few hours or so."

Minecraft Pocket Edition players are in an outrage, blaming developer Jens and Tommaso for never releasing 0.9.0. About an hour later, Tommaso confirmed that 0.9.0 will never be released to the public.  There are already dozens of petitions to Mojang by Pocket Edition players, asking them to resume development on Pocket Edition. See the source link for more information.

APRIL FOOLS!

Oh, thank God, Corbin, a April Fools Joke. When I saw this my heart literally stopped. But I'm alive! Minecraft is usually #1 on the App Store, they would never stop it, well I don't think they would... And to work on 0.9.0 for all this time and to stop it- they would never! Console and PC would see tremendous growth though...
