It is a pity that real-time strategy games no longer have many followers in today's gaming world. Of course, the games are still in development and there are a lot of great RTS games on the market, but the genre doesn't seem as popular as it once was. It's still going on though, and it might even get a bit of a revival at some point as it turns out Minecraft could evolve into a real-time strategy game.

What are RTS Games?

Real-time strategy (RTS) is a subgenre of strategy video games that do not progress incrementally in sequence, but allow all players to play simultaneously, in "real time". In contrast, in turn-based strategy (TBS) games, players take turns. The term “real-time strategy” was coined by Brett Sperry in the early 1990s to market Dune II.

If we go back to our article;

That's according to Jeff Gerstmann, former editor and co-founder of Giant Bomb. Gerstmann said in a recent Twitch broadcast spotted by Gaming Bolt that the Minecraft team is currently working on an RTS spinoff. According to some data, players will be able to command a Steve-like character or unit and most likely fight piglets and other enemies. The game will have a plot element as well as some cutscenes. Microsoft is also testing with the spin-off apparently under development under a codename, but frankly, the game isn't finished yet if it's real.

Given that Minecraft is one of the most popular video games of all time and has a long history, not many people would envision it as anything other than a vast universe where users can build whatever their imaginations require. Some young players may even have grown up with it, so it may seem strange to some to see a strategy spin-off taking place in an isometric space.

However, there have been a few variations on the traditional format. Alongside the dungeon crawler Minecraft Dungeons, which will be released in 2020, is Telltale Games' Minecraft: Story Mode, which came out in 2015. While the first was received positively, the second did not give the same rating. But both show that it is possible to change Mojang's open world sandbox IP to something different. Maybe a real-time strategy game isn't that far off. It should be noted, however, that neither Mojang nor Microsoft have endorsed any of this.

If that's true, many fans, new to the genre or not, will be interested in checking out this spin-off. There are many RTS games that are ideal for beginners like Age of Empires 2 or Halo Wars, so if a strategy version of Minecraft is on the way, now might be a good time to practice.
