I’ve never played Minecraft which puts me in an amazingly small minority of gamers. That doesn’t mean that the possibility of a Minecraft story mode doesn’t intrigue me. This isn’t going to be your standard story mode in Minecraft.
Yesterday, Mojang announced that it would be teaming up with Telltale Games to make Minecraft: Story Mode. It’s not a story mode in Minecraft, though. It’s a standalone Telltale Game set in the world of Minecraft.
The rumours are true. The biggest little indie studio in the world is being bought by the biggest evil empire in gaming (except for maybe EA… and Ubisoft). The earlier reports about Microsoft buying Minecraft developer Mojang was just a little off the mark. The US tech giant bought the Swedish indie studio for a whopping $2.5 billion.
The biggest little indie studio in gaming might soon become part of the current evil empire of gaming. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft is strongly pursuing Minecraft developer Mojang and has a deal worth more than $2 billion on the table for the company.
