Former Rockstar developers working on Minecraft Dungeons

Founded by former Rockstar developers Lee Hutchinson and Matt Shepcar in 2009, Double Eleven is an independent video game developer and publisher. Known for development of console ports of Goat Simulator, Prison Architect and as a co-developer on Crackdown 3, Double Eleven has announced its partnership with Mojang on Minecraft Dungeons.

Minecraft Dungeons is the upcoming action RPG (think Diablo) set in the Minecraft universe. The game is being developed by Mojang with Double Eleven handling the ports to console.

Additionally, Double Eleven will be “focused around developing the console editions of the project with Mojang, content creation and helping develop the game’s underlying online and multiplayer systems, all with the goal of creating the best possible player experience for the groundbreaking title.”

Minecraft Dungeons was announced at E3 2019 during Microsoft’s press conference. It’s playable by one to four players and is being developed using the Unreal Engine.

Lee Hutchinson, founder and CEO of Double Eleven said;

It’s a real honour to help with the creation of such an exciting, high-profile release as Minecraft Dungeons

This December will mark Double Eleven’s 10th anniversary, and in that time we’ve developed a track record of technical expertise and creativity. This milestone highlights the next phase of the team’s expansion, and we’ve got more exciting announcements still to come this year.

Mojang echoed Hutchinson’s sentiments with Executive Producer David Nisshagen saying, “We’re thrilled to have found a partner that shares our passion for creating great games, and we’re looking forward to working closely with Double Eleven to bring Minecraft Dungeons to a wide range of platforms.”

Minecraft Dungeons is scheduled to be released in 2020.
