After some rumors last week, Microsoft has made it official that they will be aquiring the creator of the hit game Minecraft, Mojang, for $2.5 billion dollars. In a press release, Microsoft revealed some of their plans for the Mojang team.
The aquisition is set to close in late 2014. Microsoft plans to continue making the game available on all it’s current platforms including PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Xbox and Playstation, but we’ll have to see just how long that lasts.
Unfortunately the founders of Mojang, Notch, Carl, and Jakob are leaving entirely. It’s unknown exactly what their future will hold, but it won’t be related to Minecraft.
What are your feeling about this? Do you think Microsoft will cause too many changes? Let us know in the comments.
