Minecraft Studio Looking To Co-Publish Indie Games
Mojang Specifications business development director Daniel Kaplan has revealed that the Minecraft developer is interested in co-publishing indie games with other studios, and has its sights set on getting a title to market by Autumn. Though the details are yet to be pinned down, the studio wants to bring new games under the Mojang brand.
"We are in a great spot right now, we can basically do whatever we want to," Kaplan told Gamesindustry.biz. "The hardest thing for us right now is to say 'no' to all the deals we're being offered. There are tonnes of opportunities out there for us right now. But we have to wait it out and figure out what's the best thing for us to do.
"[The offers are] from hardware manufacturers, other publishers, ad networks, all that stuff. We're looking into publishing our own games too though, bringing indie games under our own brand. We're still having to figure out how that's going to work out."
Kaplan also hinted that the studio, which currently focuses on PC releases, may look to consoles in the future: "We're always looking for new platforms, and consoles are very interesting for us, obviously. There are huge possibilities for us there."
