Microsoft Mining Mojang?

Rumour1

According to a number of sources, Microsoft is currently holding talks with Minecraft developer Mojang with aims to purchase the company with insiders claiming a deal worth around the $2 billion mark has been tabled and could be accepted by Mojang as early as next week. If such a deal does go through it’s unlikely to effect Minecraft in the near future however any sequels or new IPs by Mojang would in all likelihood only see release on Windows and or XBox platforms.

  1. There are alot of people that want Minecraft on Nintendo Consoles and while it might still happen if Mojang was bought it feels incredibly unlikely especially with the console industries fixation on ‘Console Exclusives’.

    1. It is indeed a game Nintendo fans have been crying out for for awhile now but even if this deal doesn’t go through I don’t think we’ll ever see a Minecraft Wii U edition given some of the, less then pleasant things the games creator Markus Persson has had to say about Nintendo’s home console. That said I do think a 3DS version could possibly happen one day, maybe.
