Before Minecraft gets its official release on November 18, there will be two major features added to the MMO, according to creator Markus "Notch" Persson on his .
Persson states that the features will be added by October 18 at the latest, giving his development team a month-long window to deal with bugs before the game's release. The two features have not been revealed yet.
Notch also updated fans on Mojang's legal issues with ZeniMax because of the latter's injunction on the former for calling the former's virtual collectible card game "Scrolls", thinking that it'll somehow cause confusion with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Persson noted, "We are claiming one thing. They are claiming another. We’ve tried to negotiate, but we can’t reach an agreement, so we’re going to court. I’m personally very opinionated about things like these. I asked our lawyers, and apparently the documents ZeniMax submitted became public once they were filed... essentially it all boils down to whether 1. the relevant public are likely to be confused into thinking that our “Scrolls” game is connected with Bethesda or its games, taking all the circumstances into account; and 2. apparently the “ ” doesn’t count."
Does Zenimax really think people will confuse a massive retail release of an open world RPG with a card game?
