Microsoft Might Disclose 2.5 Billion Purchase of Mojang on Monday

By   /   Sep 13, 2014

Previously, it was reported that Mojang, the developers behind the popular game Minceraft are going to be bought by Microsoft and some new developments have happened since then, and it has been revealed by Reuters that the Mojang/Microsoft deal will officially be unveiled on Monday.

This new deal to purchase the owner of Minecraft will cost Microsoft the total sum of $2.5 Billion and it will surely help the organization in the future.

CEO of Tap Lab, Dave Bisceglia had something to say on this new deal:

It seems like Microsoft is looking at Mojang and Minecraft as a way to tap into this enormous cultural phenomenon. If you look at iOS, Minecraft has been a top-grossing game for quite some time, if Microsoft could on Windows phones give players a unique and compelling experience that you can’t get on the other platforms, that could be a driver to sell devices to existing Minecraft fans.

He has made a very good point as this new deal will definitely allow Microsoft Phones to become a bigger entity because it has been overshadowed by Android and iOS.

Minecraft since its launch has become a phenomenon as it has now been taught in schools, people are developing the maps of whole countries in it and the player count of the title is increasing by every passing day.

Microsoft purchasing Minecraft could lead to so many things, but we will see how the situation develops after the deal is officially disclosed to the public.
