Update: Microsoft has officially announced the Minecradt RTS game to be called Minecraft Legends. it will be available on console, PC, and cloud. It is expected to release in 2023. 

Minecraft reportedly has a new game in the works, and this time it's going to be a real-time strategy title. This information comes courtesy of Jeff Gerstmann who spoke about this upcoming Minecraft game on his Twitch channel. According to Gerstmann, the game is in testing at the moment, and it puts players in control of the main character who can give orders to other characters to go up against Minecraft's enemies.

He explained: "From the basic descriptions, and I got to see a couple of screenshots of it, it seems like a real-time strategy game - an RTS of sorts. But the difference is you're controlling a Steve-esque unit on the field and ordering your units around in a third-person view. And you're taking on Piglins and it'll have a story and cut-scenes and all this other stuff." Gerstmann further added that he thought this new game could be shown over the next couple of weeks -- even as soon as the upcoming Microsoft and Bethesda conference.

"I don't know if this is something that's going to get announced at Microsoft's event but there's a new Microsoft spin-off in the works... Microsoft appears to be testing it out and putting it out under a code name.

However, Gerstmann stopped short of detailing which studio is working on the project. Interestingly, this is the first Minecraft spin-off from Microsoft. Minecraft Dungeons continues to be one of the most popular such titles.
