It was a highly expected and now it’s official. Microsoft has bought Swedish Mojang, creator of Minecraft for 2.5 billion dollars!

Minecraft is more than a great game franchise – it is an open world platform, driven by a vibrant community we care deeply about, and rich with new opportunities for that community and for Microsoft.

Minecraft is of course a huge multiplatform hit. When it came to Xbox, it became the best selling online game.
