Coronavirus Cited For Minecraft Festival Postponement
Minecraft Festival tickets were planned to go on sale as soon as this week
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告别零和游戏 互联网助力家装行业步入共赢时代, 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 京城公积金贷款新规落地72小时：房产中介电话成热线
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.
'I thought I was going to sell the app in the Apple store for a pound or two each, and then I'd use the money to buy a new computer,' says D'Aloisio. 'I'd never had any contact from an investor before. And now here's an email supposedly from a Hong Kong billionaire. It sounded dodgy. I didn't respond the first time. They had to email me again.' D'Aloisio was accompanied by his mother and father ('they were a bit bewildered, it was kind of insane') as he took a meeting with Horizons Ventures's representatives in London in August 2011. The meeting ended with D'Aloisio receiving a seed investment of $300,000.
