Minecraft has been around for almost a decade, with the first public version being put out into the world on May 17, 2009. Microsoft will be marking the anniversary, of course, but one significant part of the game’s history is being left in the past. Marcus “Notch” Persson won’t be part of the event.

“His comments and opinions do not reflect those of Microsoft or Mojang and are not representative of Minecraft,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Variety

In March, his name was also removed from Minecraft’s splash screen, which previously included “Made by Notch” and “The Work of Notch” as well as other lines. A recent patch added a bunch of new lines while getting rid of references to him, though he still appears in the credits.

Persson sold Minecraft to Microsoft in 2014, and since then he has became know for controversial tweets and statements.

Minecraft’s 10-year anniversary will take place on May 17.
