Minecraft developer now officially part of Microsoft


The Minecraft developer is now #officially part of the Microsoft Game Studios family, executive Phil Spencer #announced today.

Microsoft shelled out $2.5 billion for the former indie in September, and has promised to continue supporting non-Microsoft platform versions of Minecraft.

Minecraft is available on Linux, Android, iOS, Mac, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. So it will be interesting to see what platform changes will be made with the new ownership.

Mojang founder and Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson said the whole shebang just got too big for him, and is stepping away from the company to preserve his well being.
