Microsoft buys Mojang for $2.5 BILLION! This means $1,775,000,000 for Markus “Notch” Persson's 71% shares and $525 million for Jakob Porsér who owned 21% of the company. Besides those guys now being ridiculously rich (I know they have already been before), what do you guys think will happen to the studio?

I have one more Minecraft video coming out next Saturday and that will be the last Minecraft video I produce on my channel. I have decided to not support Minecraft or Mojang since I do not feel Microsoft is a company that should be supported due to their business practices, but mostly because of the hypocrisy displayed by Notch in this matter.

 

It has come to light that while he was tweeting his independence and disdain for the mainstream gaming business, he was, at the same time, in talks with Microsoft to sell Mojang. It seems clear now, that he initiated the talks, not Microsoft. I have lost all respect for him and his views and will certainly not support him or any of his creations, present or future. Some may admire the fact that he is now a billionaire, but the money doesn't impress me. The word of a man, the integrity of a man is worth more than 2 billion dollars.

 

My complaint here isn't the fact that he is selling Minecraft, rather his hypocrisy in the matter. I would have probably taken the money as well, but I wouldn't be tweeting how I was better than the other guys because I was an indie developer and not one of the evil mainstream developers. I expect he was probably under a non-disclosure which makes the matter even worse; he should have said nothing. Rather he chose to talk out of both sides of his mouth. Some people may think me foolish, but I still value integrity, as old fashioned as that may sound.

 

I will still post a vid from time to time, but it will not be Minecraft.

Read something in the paper this morning about Microsoft buying minecraft developers, no idea if its just rumours. I do not follow minecraft so might be worth looking into if you do.

It's just unsubstantiated rumors. Remember that just a few weeks ago still everyone was absolutely sure Google was buying Twitch.

The key, btw, is to look for phrases like "sources close to" or "unnamed sources", which is the only source of information provided for this current rumor. Those unnamed sources may very well be inside Microsoft or Mojang, but details of deals are never shared with rank and file employees before they're done and the people involved in the deals would never share anonymously. There are two other possibilities. Sources inside one or the other might "leak" the deal in order to motivate the other party to actually sign off on it. Otherwise, shareholders might "leak" the information in order to provide a boost to Microsoft's share price so they can sell at the best possible price quickly.
