Mojang officially part of Microsoft family
It’s official: Mojang is now a part of Microsoft. The news was tweeted by Xbox head Phil Spencer, who welcomed the developer as the newest member of Microsoft Studios. Back in September rumors of the acquisition starting making the rounds, and were later proven true when Microsoft announced they were purchasing the Swedish indie studio for $2.5 billion. Now that the acquisition is complete, Microsoft officially owns Mojang and their hit game Minecraft. In a recent interview Phil Spencer talked with IGN about the future of Minecraft, stating he wanted to “meet the needs and the desires” of the community.
