It has been announced that developer-publisher Double Eleven will continue its partnership with Mojang over the development of upcoming action-adventure title Minecraft Dungeons. The standalone game, which is a spin-off from the massively popular Minecraft franchise takes players over a whole new type of experience focussed largely on dungeon crawling.
"It's a real honour to help with the creation of such an exciting, high-profile release as Minecraft Dungeons", said Lee Hutchinson, founder and CEO of Double Eleven. "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."
Double Eleven's role in the development of Minecraft Dungeons can be seen in the console editions, content creation and the construction of the title's online and multiplayer systems. The developer is looking to bring the best possible player experience for fans when the game launches on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch in 2020.
"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," said David Nisshagen, Executive Producer at Mojang. "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."
