Minecraft Earth

2019 augmented reality spin-off video game of Minecraft

Minecraft Earth was an augmented reality game based on the video game Minecraft. It was developed by Mojang Studios and published by Xbox Game Studios for mobile phones.

Gameplay change

Like Minecraft, Minecraft Earth was a game focused on building, gathering, crafting and exploring. It used the same Bedrock game engine as some versions of Minecraft. In “build mode” players could build on “buildplates” with other people, they could then explore them in “play mode”.

Why it was cancelled change

On 5 January 2021, developer Mojang Studios announced that they were releasing the final build of Minecraft Earth due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They shut down the game on 30 June 2021.
