New 'Minecraft' Update Removes References Of The Game's Controversial Creator

Many have wondered for awhile when Minecraft developer Mojang would further distance itself from the game's creator Markus "Notch" Persson.

Well, it finally has.

In a new update, Mojang has canned all mentions of the controversial visionary in the game's opening menu splash screen.

That said, while Persson has been removed from the splash screen messages, he does still remain named in the credits as the game's creator.

Why Microsoft and Mojang have decided to do this, remains unclear.

However, it likely has to do with how controversial Notch has become since he left the company he helped create in 2014.

There's been no official statement released by either Microsoft or Mojang on the matter.

However, Notch himself did chime in when interacting with a fan on Twitter.
