Microsoft's Mojang Studios, which makes Minecraft, will soon rely totally rely on Microsoft Azure for cloud computing.
Seems only natural.
Probably a contract with amazon expiring soon. That would make the most sense since Microsoft Azure could handle Minecraft huge volume of users easilly from the start of owning them.
To me, this is only news if it doesn't go well. The software and service should work exactly as it did before from a user experience point of view.
Should have been done a loooong time ago.
