Yesterday Notch announced that he won't continue developing on Minecraft anymore. Jens Bergensten aka jeb weill be the new lead developer.

Quote:
Och med dom orden så passar jag micken.

As of yesterday, Jens Bergensten is the new lead developer on Minecraft. He will have the final say in all design decisions, so he will kinda sorta become my boss, I guess. I’ve promised him to not pull rank. ;)

We’ve been working together on Minecraft for a year now, and I’m amazed at how much in synch we two are when it comes to how to design the game. And when we don’t agree, we discuss it and something much better comes out at a result. He’s truly a great person to work with, and I feel very confident handing over the leadership of Minecraft to him.

If you want to contact Jens, he’s on twitter as @jeb_, or you can email him at [email protected]

Personally, I will now rest for a while, then get back to work refreshed and eager. I’ll be helping out with Minecraft, of course, but also starting work on some new project.

So I was wondering if saying that he'll start working on "some new project" does necessarily mean that he'll join the Scrolls development team?! To be honest I can't really imagine that there is another new project they're working on, since the development of Minecraft and Scrolls (and Cobalt) is already requiering lots of resources. Moreover Scrolls was his and Jakobs idea/dream. It's their game, so I can't imagine Notch not concentrate on working on that after he finally finished Minecraft 1.0. However, he does not say "Scrolls", but "some new project" and that is what makes me kind of confused. What do you think?

Kind regards,
Vio

@Violix I think he might be working on a personal project he's had in his head in a while. :S

Yeah, I totally think he's secretly dedicating his time to another project besides scrolls, he's mentioned before that he's came up with plenty of game designs.

He just seems like the guy who keeps starting new things before finishing what he has began. Just look at MineCraft ;)
He added something which was kind of cool to begin with, but instead of making it work smoothly he just added something else.
I think it is something completely new.
There is also this "Tea Kwon Do" or however they spell it. Wonder what that is all about.

As of Jeb taking over the lead. Good!
I think this will actually increase the productivity!
Let's see what he will bring us

Ja, me as well xD
I try to change this behaviour though, because it doesn't get you anywhere (obviously)
But now that he owns a company like Mojang, he should probably also learn to focus on one thing.

Isn't that exactly what he's doing by moving on to a new project? :)

Sounds like's ready to begin working full-time on Scrolls, and is focusing solely on that for a while. =)

I still don't think it's Scrolls.
And only time will tell if he will focus on it ;D
