Minecraft MINECON Earth 2018: Pillagers, pandas, new Dungeons game

Just like any other hit game, Minecraft's hype has died down a bit over time. But unlike most other hit games, its scope continues to expand, both within the game as well as into other areas developers Mojang may have never imagined it would go.

It is almost ironic to think that it was after Microsoft acquired Minecraft and its developers that the popular voxel sandbox game exploded into more platforms and use cases. From mobile to rival consoles to education to AI research, Minecraft has become both a game and a learning tool for anyone and everyone. Continuing that "Minecraft everywhere" spirit, the Nintendo Switch Edition of Minecraft will finally get its "Better Together" cross-play feature in the Bedrock update schedule for next month.

Minecraft is available on a truly impressive number of platforms, but it won't be long now before Mojang and Microsoft drop some of them from their update schedule.
