Jeb becomes lead developer

2 Dec, 2011

Notch announces that he is stepping down as lead developer of Minecraft and giving Jeb the job. Notch’s position as the head of Mojang remains unchanged and he says he will start working on a new project soon:

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…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.
