Notch Passes the Minecraft Torch

The Word of Notch announces that Markus 'Notch' Persson is stepping down as lead developer on Minecraft:

As of yesterday, Jens Bergensten is the new lead developer on Minecraft. He will have the final say in all design decisions, so he will kinda sorta become my boss, I guess. Iíve promised him to not pull rank. ;)

Weíve been working together on Minecraft for a year now, and Iím amazed at how much in synch we two are when it comes to how to design the game. And when we donít agree, we discuss it and something much better comes out at a result. Heís truly a great person to work with, and I feel very confident handing over the leadership of Minecraft to him.

If you want to contact Jens, heís on twitter as @jeb_, or you can email him at jeb@mojang.com

Personally, I will now rest for a while, then get back to work refreshed and eager. Iíll be helping out with Minecraft, of course, but also starting work on some new project.
