Minecraft Now Belongs To Microsoft

And here's your breaking news for the day: Mojang has been bought by Microsoft for $2.5 billion dollars. The sale is in the process of being solidified, but Mojang broke the news on their home page. Minecraft now belongs to the hands of Microsoft. Founders Notch, Carl, and Jakob are leaving the company, but unsure if that was part of the terms. It may have been reactionary; "Microsoft has it, they can do as they wish."

Given how popular Minecraft is on PC and XBox 360, with a fast port to the XBox One, I'm not at all surprised Microsoft seized the opportunity.

Man...a lot of gaming oriented businesses are making big bucks and sales lately.
