Minecraft developer announces the shutdown of card game Scrolls

Minecraft developer Mojang revealed this week that it will be shutting down its online card game Scrolls on February 13th. This shouldn’t come as a huge shock to the community, as the studio announced back in 2015 that it was ceasing development for the game but keeping the servers on for a while.

“The game has reached a point where it can no longer sustain continuous development,” the studio said then. Before next week’s sunset occurs, there will be a final community tournament on Saturday the 11th.

This doesn’t mean that Scrolls will go away for good, however. The team also said that it has plans to allow the players to host their own game servers within the next few weeks or months, but not as open source.

minecraft wasn’t even notch’s idea so to say – he got the idea for mc of an existing game that did the same (early) stuff that mc did but was buggy broken and abandoned. so he made his own basically.

not saying notch didn’t bring great ideas to mc mind you (not that i like everything he added to it), just that this game would be his one original game from teh ground up and it sucked badly.

was a smart decision for him to sell out to ms i think >>

I legit thought they had already closed it.

It’s really awesome they’re going to allow it to live on however.

Really? That’s surprising, I thought ESO was doing well.

not surprising. it didn’t get much attention from gamers at all (tho not through lack of awareness, in part due to the lawsuit by bethesda over the name)

It still got a fair amount of initial attention due to Minecraft. It didn’t spread beyond that because few of said players had much good to say about the game.
