Coronavirus Cited For Minecraft Festival Postponement
Minecraft Festival tickets were planned to go on sale as soon as this week
Concerns about the vulnerability of some emerging economies and gyrations in financial markets over the past few days should not dent “cautious optimism” about the global economy this year, leading central bankers and officials said on Saturday.
What makes this cancelation worse is that the event was announced just last week. It was set to be the first Minecraft Festival in four years, taking place this September in Florida. Supposedly, the event was also planned to entertain more ticketholders than previous Festivals. According to an统计局：前11月全国房地产开发投资110083亿元 同比增9.7%, tickets for the Minecraft Festival were set to be released this Friday. However, Mojang staff wrote that “after careful consideration and much hand-wringing, we have decided to postpone the event until next year.” This news comes just as officials in Florida announced 厨卫行业发布首个消费趋势报告
The post then goes on to cite the numerous other events – such as GDC and multiple e-sports events – that have either been canceled or postponed as justification for Mojang’s preventative actions. Another unusual part of this case is also brought up – the sizable gap in time between now and the former Minecraft Festival launch date. The post goes on to explain that the decision is simply cautionary, as Mojang is “not making any predictions about how long it will take to put the outbreak behind us.”
For fans still looking for a Minecraft event, Minecraft Live will still be airing and promises “epic announcements.” It currently has no announced date or time.
