Luckily Minecon, a yearly event held by Mojang, will still continue next year as per Microsoft and they promise that there will be lots in store for us.
As per Microsoft:
“At Microsoft, we believe in the power of content to unite people. Minecraft adds diversity to our game portfolio and helps us reach new gamers across multiple platforms. Gaming is the top activity across devices and we see great potential to continue to grow the Minecraft community and nurture the franchise. That is why we plan to continue to make Minecraft available across platforms – including iOS, Android and PlayStation, in addition to Xbox and PC.”
“As you might already know, Notch is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.”
With this acquisition, I really hope Mojang and the game Minecraft will be improve for Better. Some of us may think that this is a bad move or some of us will say this is good. For me, all I wanted is the game to be improve and as long as I am happy with the game, I will still route and continue my support for Minecraft.
