Microsoft pulls the plug on Minecraft AR Game

The ongoing pandemic situation has not been kind to the tech industry. Apart from the global slowdown, it had a major impact on business and products that required the free movement of individuals. Case in point is Microsoft’s Minecraft Earth AR game that was launched in 2019 and as the governments across the globe are struggling with their fight with the pandemic, Microsoft has pulled the shutters down for Minecraft Earth AR.

To recall, Minecraft Earth is a free to play AR game similar to Pokemon Go but was designed around collaboratively building structures in augmented reality. It crossed over a million downloads within the first week of its announcement and was even listed in Time magazine as one of its Best 100 Inventions of 2019.  However, both Pokemon Go and Minecraft Earth AR had suffered a drastic drop in the engagement due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
