Mojang studio is famous for its masterpiece Minecraft, which afforded $ 129 million profit in 2013, and which, in its turn, most likely interested Microsoft. Despite the absence of the official information about the agreement, there are more and more rumors day by day. If it’s true, then Mojang probably will become a studio dealing with the games for XBOX One.

Although initially the news concerning this agreement was unexpected, as Mojang with its unofficial leader Markus "Notch" Persson, the developer of Minecraft, has always been proud of its independence.

Many people in the gaming industry and gaming press were surprised by the possibility that Mojang can be purchased by Microsoft, because previously Persson has openly criticized Microsoft. However, sources from Bloomberg say that Persson was the first who offered the deal, due to the good working relationship and close partnership with Xbox’s boss Phil Spencer.

If to trust the Bloomberg sources, Persson will remain in Mojang until the bargain is concluded. However, most likely he will leave the company after that.

Will the bargain be really concluded or not? If yes, what future will Minecraft have? For now it’s still a mystery wrapped in obscurity.
