Looks like Microsoft has a surprise up its sleeves. The company has just posted a brief teaser of Minecraft AR game which says that the game would be announced on May 17 on Minecraft.net
In the teaser video, the game looks similar to other AR games like Pokemon go which can be played in a blend of virtual and real-world elements. Interestingly, not many games have been able to utilize the true potential of Augmented reality apart from Pokemon Go, which has been downloaded over 500 Million times.
Interestingly this game is being released on the 10-anniversary of Minecraft game. The game was earlier shown with Holo Lens back in 2015, this teaser which shows that the game doesn’t need these headsets any more suggests that there could be much more on May 17. The company hasn’t revealed any more details about the game as of now.
