Developer and publisher Double Eleven unveiled their ongoing partnership with Mojang for the development of the upcoming dungeon crawling action-adventure game Minecraft Dungeons; a standalone adventure from the Minecraft universe.
Double Eleven’s role in the development of Minecraft Dungeons is focused around developing the console editions of the project with Mojang, content creation and helping develop the game’s underlying online and multiplayer systems, all with the goal of creating the best possible player experience for the groundbreaking title which is set to release sometime next year.
Here’s what the founder and CEO of Double Eleven, Lee Hutchinson, had to say about this partnership:
“It’s a real honour to help with the creation of such an exciting, high-profile release as Minecraft Dungeons. This December will mark Double Eleven’s 10th anniversary, and in that time we’ve developed a track record of technical expertise and creativity. This milestone highlights the next phase of the team’s expansion, and we’ve got more exciting announcements still to come this year.”
David Nisshagen, Executive Producer at Mojang, adds:
“We’re thrilled to have found a partner that shares our passion for creating great games, and we’re looking forward to working closely with Double Eleven to bring Minecraft Dungeons to a wide range of platforms. We’re excited to watch our passion project continue to grow, and Double Eleven’s expertise and dedication will help us create a high-quality experience for our community.”
