Mojang head Markus "Notch" Persson has revealed more about a recently canceled project. For a time the company was working on a project codenamed "Rex Kwon Do" in collaboration with an unnamed external company.

Notch had tweeted that the project was canceled, citing the company's desire to devote resources to projects that were wholly owned by Mojang. Now, he's told Joystiq that the project was a first-person shooter. While we'll never know how the game might have turned out, it's interesting to learn that Mojang was working on an FPS, as it's certainly not what you'd expect from the studio.
