“Yes, the deal is real. Mojang (minecraft) is being bought by Microsoft.” – Owen Hill, Chief word officer at Mojang.
Microsoft has just acquired Mojang studios and all of its intellectual property including Minecraft for 2.5 Billion dollars.
It was rumored earlier this week that Microsoft was looking to place a bid on the highly successful developing company Mojang which does not come as a shock.
It will be interesting to see how this will affect future releases and updates on cross platform such as PS3, PS4, Vita and Apple devices.
“Everything is going to be OK. <3” – Owen, Chief word officer at Mojang.
