Mojang has three new games in the works

The indie developer is working on three new titles.

Mojang, home to cult hit Minecraft and its creator Marcus “Notch” Persson, has revealed that it is working on three new projects, two of which will be announced and possibly released in the first half of this year.

The first title should come as no surprise: Notch’s first post-Minecraft game. The project hasn’t gone very far at all into the development phase however, as Notch is taking a break following his extensive work the company’s breakout title.

“What it is today, I don’t think he knows himself,” said Mojang CEO Carl Manneh. “We certainly don’t. It’s probably going to be a lot of testing and playing around to see what works.”

Thanks to the success of Minecraft, Manneh admits that Notch has become the face of Mojang. It’s because of this that the company is working on three separate projects in order to show that there’s more to the developer than just its star developer.

“I think Notch will always be the fixed star over a long period of time, because he’s Notch,” he replied. “But we don’t look at it that way – he gets a lot of attention, but other people in the company do too. So it’s not something we’re actively concerned about.”

Manneh has confidence that the company’s other two projects, which are the two set to be announced and possibly released in the first half of 2012, will be strong evidence of Mojang’s talent as a whole.

“I think that comes with the new games we’re creating,” he said. “They will have a big impact on Mojang over the next year.

“I can’t talk about them, because we have NDAs with companies. Otherwise, we want to be very transparent about everything we do, but in this case we can’t.”
