Mojang Now Officially Owned by Microsoft

By Leon Hurley on at

Xbox's Phil Spencer just tweeted that the acquisition of Minecraft developer Mojang has now gone through, making the studio officially part of Microsoft.

A couple of weeks back Phil was answering questions about the future for both the studio and the game. At the time the sale hadn't gone through but he spoke of seeing Xbox as "shepherds of the IP", while admitting 'Minecraft 2' probably wasn't the way forward.

Whatever  happens next, there's no going back: Mojang, and Minecraft, belongs to Microsoft.
