Microsoft Buys Mojang

On Monday, Microsoft announced that it had purchased ‘Minecraft’ administrator and owner Mojang for $2.5 billion, 25% more than the original deal was rumored to be valued at.

While this will make Mojang some cash and will give them some advantageous connections in the extensive reach of the huge tech company, I have some concerns that this sale will affect Mojang’s sales and will affect the physical structure of the game, which I enjoy playing very much.

Stay tuned this weekend for my 3 points on why this deal might have some unfortunate results. Follow The Bengal Review so you can see immediately when the post comes out!

  1. “Microsoft announced that it had purchased ‘Minecraft’ creator Mojang”

    Wrong, Mojang is the administrator, not the creator. The creator was Notch. Mojang was funded after the creation of the game.

    1. Thank you so much for clarifying. I hadn’t thought of that. I’ll change that immediately.

      If you’d like to see what I think, please follow The Bengal Review so that you can see my post on Saturday on the sale.
