It looks like Minecraft‘s finally pulling on its big-boy pants, oddly enough the same day Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim launches. That’s right: Minecraft finally has a release date.
“We picked November 11, with the unofficial tagline ‘us too’,” writes the game’s creator, Markus “Notch” Persson on his official blog. “It’s the same date as a few other games and movies, and the one I’m the most excited about is Skyrim, so that will be a nice reward for me if we actually manage to hit that date!”
Not that Minecraft hasn’t been released already–we’ve been playing a working beta since December 2010. But you know, a version that developer Mojang can finally call…well…whatever you call a product you’re already charging money for and supporting (according to the game’s site, over 6 million people have registered the game to date, of which about 1.8 million have purchased it).
