Microsoft purchases Mojang, the studio behind Minecraft, for 2.5 Billion dollars.
Well look who changed their mind about Microsoft. Well, I think anyone would change their mind of there were 2.5 Billion dollars in the middle. Markus Persson didn´t have nice things to say to Microsoft in 2012 when he told Microsoft to stop trying to ruin the PC as an open platform.
There is no doubt that Microsoft is going to use the game in order to benefit many of their platforms and it looks like the founders are going to be working on new projects and not joining Microsoft.
If you are a Minecraft fan then you will be happy to know that Microsoft is going to keep the game on an open platform and will not make it a Windows only game.
