Fans believe Mojang is abandoning a successful game for no reason.
The Minecraft Dungeons community isn’t too happy that their beloved game is being abandoned, especially since it recently hit the 25 million unique player milestone.
Several Reddit threads have recently popped up on the Minecraft Dungeons subreddit with fans expressing their frustration.
One thread read: “This game had so much potential. It’s a shame they’re doing with it. Why are they doing this? Are they stupid?”
Many players have criticized Mojang for prioritizing Minecraft Legends, which has seen much less success than Minecraft Dungeons.
“Yet they (Microsoft) continue to support Legends, which is absolute garbage, especially compared to Dungeons. And there are already fewer players,” said one Reddit commenter. “Legends is a game that needs a support kit, because it’s already dead. Legends already has a smaller community than Dungeons and that really says a lot about the game.”
The community believes so passionately that Minecraft Dungeons should continue that a change.org petition has emerged, although it has received only 66 signatures so far.
