Minecraft is one of the biggest video games in entertainment. This legendary game is reaching its 10-year anniversary but creator Markus Persson, better known as Notch, is not invited to the special event.

The event is taking place next month on May 17 in Stockholm, Sweden. In a statement given to Variety, a representative from Microsoft explained that Persson hasn’t been invited because of his past statements.

“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” said the quote from Microsoft.

After selling Mojang to Microsoft in 2014 Notch has been active on social media, but in a mostly negative way. Voicing statements some find offensive. Mojang and Microsoft have been distancing themselves from Notch, going as far to remove his name from the Minecraft opening menu
