“Today marks a new chapter for MCPEDL as I will be passing on the torch of ownership to my friends at Overwolf. A dedicated team at Overwolf will be in charge of continuously improving MCPEDL to be the best Minecraft content manager out there and Overwolf will also help lay the groundwork for monetization to ensure that creators are paid for their contributions. I have full confidence that MCPEDL creators will be in good hands and the best is yet to come for MCPEDL and the community,” commented John Zenkert, MCPEDL Founder.
Today, over 95,000 creators are able to benefit from Overwolf’s commitment to helping mod authors and in-game creators build, distribute and monetize their in-game apps and mods.
