The latest Minecraft update makes a few changes to the decade-old phenomenon, none more notable than the fact the game’s splash screens have removed all mention of Minecraft’s creator Markus “Notch” Persson.
Previously, the game’s splash screens—the yellow text you see when Minecraftboots up—would display random messages, and some of them referenced Persson with stuff like “Made by Notch!” and “The Work Of Notch!”. As of the 19w13a snapshot released earlier today, those are all gone now.

We’ve reached out for official comment on the reason Persson’s name is now missing from the screens. As possible background, though, Minecraft is a game played by millions of kids all over the world, and is now owned by Microsoft. Meanwhile Notch has become a conspiracy theorist whose increasingly erratictwitter behaviour has led to a situation best described as:

Note that while his name has been removed from splash screens, Persson is still listed as the game’s creator in Minecraft’s credits.

I looked at the other incidents they're bitching about and wow, it's fucking nothing. Fuck this snowflake era

I don't know what they gain from doing this its not like they can just say Notch didn't made it because I pretty sure that pretty common knowledge unless they are going banned anyone who said his name so what is even the point of this besides certain people petting themselves in the back for being true heroes of minorities, I wonder if notch himself even care about this probably not.

It’s most likely a knee jerk reaction to his tweets. Someone at Microsoft most likely saw Notch’s tweets and told the devs involved with Minecraft “we need to distance ourselves from the creator of our game” and they interpreted that to mean “scrub his name from the titles”
