Since Mojang was busy developing the next Minecraft version, 1.8, news updates for the next MineCon were silently on hold.
Official announcements were never heard of until 5 months later, when the predicted date and location was announced on Mojang's site.
It was confirmed that MineCon wouldn't be held in 2014, instead it was moved to Spring 2015, and was held in London.[3]

Mojang revealed on February 2nd the details for MineCon 2015, confirming that MineCon would be held in ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Centre on July 4–5, 2015.[4] They also mentioned that tickets and discounted hotel bookings would be available for sale later in February.

On March 18, 2015 the Minecon Website was updated to contain a countdown till tickets went on sale. The ExCeL London page was also published.
