Being in Paris for MINECON 2012 is going to be an interesting experience for everybody. Mojang, the developer of Minecraft has not said anything about MINECON 2013, as one would expect that that should be after the success of the 2012 event. Many people are also only concerned with this year’s event instead of asking or wanting to know what would be done in 2012. Therefore, until the announcement is made, it is impossible to know the details of MINECON 2013.
