The acquisition of Minecraft developer Mojang by Microsoft for $2.5 billion took everyone by surprise and caused some debate as to whether or not the purchase was worth it for Microsoft. However, the surprise doesn’t stop there as a new game has been announced. Mojang has revealed that Telltale Games is developing Minecraft: Story Mode in collaboration with the Swedish developer and members of the Minecraft community.


Minecraft: Story Mode is going to be a narrative-driven game that will be an episodic series similar to Telltale Games’ other titles such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. As to how the community will help with the game, Mojang didn’t expand on their role except that they will help it be as “Minecrafty as possible.”


"Set in the world of Minecraft, the series will feature an original story, driven by player choice," stated Telltale Games on its website. "It will not be an add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices."


Mojang confirmed that Minecraft: Story Mode will not be an official story and didn’t provide any further details about the world of Minecraft.
