Next MineCon to 'most definitely' take place in the U.S.

Mojang's next annual Minecraft convention, MineCon, will "most definitely" take place in the United States, according to Mojang Director of Fun Lydia Wintors.

At a SXSW Interactive panel attended by Joystiq, Wintors confirmed the location.

"It'll be in the US, that's for sure," Wintors said. "It's most definitely in the US. That's all I can say. I would like to tell more, but it's not 100 percent certain so I can't say anything yet."

Wintors added that while at SXSW, her schedule would include a meeting to discuss the upcoming convention's details.

MinecraftCon began as a small gathering at Bellevue, Wash. in 2010 before growing into the full-fledged MineCon at Las Vegas in 2011. Last year's event was held at the Paris Disneyland Park from Nov. 24-25. Tickets sold out in two hours.
