Minecraft Earth Sunset FAQ

Q: Why is Minecraft Earth being shut down?

A: Due to the current global situation, we have re-allocated our resources to other areas that provide value to the Minecraft community and we have made the difficult decision to sunset Minecraft Earth.

 

Q: When is Minecraft Earth being shut down?

A: The final build of Minecraft Earth will release on 5th January, 2021 and will be playable until the sunset date of 30th June, 2021.

 

Q: Will I still be able to play until the sunset date?

A: Yes, players will be able to continue to play Minecraft Earth right up until the sunset date of 30th June, 2021.

 

Q: Is there anything different in the final build of Minecraft Earth?

A: Yes, the final build of the game released on 5th January, 2021 will:

  • Remove real-money transactions
  • Drastically reduce ruby costs of in-game content
  • Include all completed, unreleased content currently in our pipeline
  • Reduce time requirements for crafting and smelting
  • Replace unused crafting & smelting boosts with radius boosts of the same level
  • Grant a set of Persona items to players who sign in between 5 January and 30 June
  • Turn off all features and replace the game with the Sunset Screen on 30 June

 

Q: What happens if I still have the game installed after the sunset date?

A: On 30th June, all features and servers for Minecraft Earth will be turned off. Players who still have the game installed after this date will see a Sunset information screen after starting up the game and will be unable to play.

 

Q: What if I still have rubies on my account?

A: We encourage all players with earned or purchased rubies on their account to use them on in-game content like character creator items. Character creator items remain on players’ accounts and are usable in Minecraft (Bedrock). Additionally, any players who have a paid ruby balance in-game will receive a token to download Minecraft (Bedrock) on their mobile platform.  Any player with an outstanding paid ruby balance on 5th January, 2021 will be granted Minecoins, which will be usable in the Minecraft (Bedrock) Marketplace and Character Creator.

 

Q: If I’ve spent money in Minecraft Earth, will I get a refund?

A: Any players who spent money in Minecraft Earth at any point during the life of the game will receive a token to download Minecraft (Bedrock) on their mobile platform. This offer will be available for a limited time. Any player with an outstanding paid ruby balance on 5th January, 2021 will be granted Minecoins, which will be usable in the Minecraft (Bedrock) Marketplace and Character Creator.

 

Q: Will I still be able to keep and use Character Creator items after the sunset date?

A: Yes, players will be able to continue to use Character Creator items following the sunset date and will be usable on Minecraft (Bedrock).
