Microsofts bid to acquire Mojang is now complete. The Minecraft studio is now officially part of the Xbox portfolio.
Please take care of Mojang Microsoft, that's all I am asking for.
What happens to Minecraft? I expect it to be on every Microsoft device imaginable. Like the new Minesweeper, lol. Free Minecraft with Windows 8! Free Minecraft with Xbox One! Free Minecraft with Surface! Free Minecraft with Azure Server Rental! Bought Master Chief Collection? Free Minecraft! Get a free copy of Minecraft with Microsoft toilet paper!
You're 100% correct.
Minecraft Halo Edition Lego Minecraft Minecraft Star Wars OneDirectionCraft
So basically business as usual since Minecraft is on everything already.
Mincroaft XBONE Part Deux
I lost it at the toilet paper.
@dillhole There already is lego minecraft
Free? After all of the money that they spent? Doubtful.
@IcicleTrepan Oh yeah! I meant the other way round though - like Lego Batman etc.
Congratulations to both Mojang and Microsoft. Hopefully we see interesting things from Mojang in the future, and continued support for all versions of Minecraft as well.
curious to see what they do with it minecraft 2 in the near future? making it xbox and pc exclusive for limited time would certainly move consoles like no tomorrow. i also expect it to somehow be integrated into their cloud services.
So indies are a good thing again? /s
To a lot of people they are. I for one don't fancy indies.
I like indies, for the record. No Man's Sky for instance or Sound and Shapes! I made a Metroid level in Sound & Shapes that is amazing! search: Diortem I was just poking fun at the people who say things like; Indiestation
A good game is a good game, regardless of whether it is indie or AAA. The same goes for bad games.
Technically...Majang isn't indie anymore...
Thus, is now good. lol
Some indies are good, but it's seeming like more and more are just sidescrolling games from the late 80s early 90s and only few actually are being creative
R.I.P Mojang. Microsoft will kill you, just like it killed Rare, Twisted Pixel and other studios.
Twisted Pixel made one bad game and because of it they are dead?
Anti-Sony fanboys (not necessarily you Mikefizzled) are proclaiming the same for Evolution studios. So what? Am I witness to another Double-Standard?
Kind of different though. Evo is a much bigger team who delivered a product a year late to pretty weak reception. I don't know enough about game financials but I'd would be surprised if they are making money on Driveclub. Twisted Pixel are making smaller uncommon games whereas Sony have 2 driving centric studios one of which is, in my opinion, a world class studio. Hint, It Polyphony Digital not Evo.
At least parity don't matter with Minecraft...
Yes!, Yes!, Yes! Now with more resources and unlimited funding, Minecraft 2 as a XB1 and PC Windows 9 exclusive should be amazing.
I think the next Minecraft will have all of physics going for it. And destruction. Nice that Microsoft have another amazing franchise under the belt. They just have to drag the others out now. So come on conker, banjo, Joanna dark, etc..and RalliSport challenge.
I am pro Microsoft but does Minecraft (a low cost and free updated game) really have the potential to make back the money Microsoft spend on it...? idk, maybe im underestimating the popularity and power of MINECRAFT. It just seems like a huge risk to buy the studio and the rights to it. Especially since idk if the studio has done anything else but minecraft that's popular.
They should now be named Rare 2
so now we wait and see, do ms screw up minecraft in their quest for monopolies and money? or will they actually do what's right for the game and it's huge community. personally, i fear the former, they're going to want some return on their two and a half billion investment.
