It was reported a few days ago that Microsoft plans to purchase Minecraft developer Mojang. New details say the deal will be worth $2.5 billion. The implications for Microsoft to acquire Mojang are huge. If Minecraft is to be Microsoft exclusive, the Xbox One could have a potential huge hit if Minecraft 2 is ever made. Mac and Linux versions of Minecraft will be gone, along with the new Raspberry PI version to. If the rumours are true, it’s very likely PlayStation and PSVita versions will also disappear and Pocket Edition will be exclusive to Windows phones. The game could still be released on Windows PC obviously, but other platforms would be out of the equation.
And what will happen to Minecon? What will happen to the Miencraft merchandise? This could be a huge change to Minecraft, the biggest change.
