With information breaking as we speak that Minecraft-maker Mojang has officially sold to Microsoft, the primary query that involves my thoughts is what this may imply for Mac and iOS customers.
Microsoft now has the power and doubtless a lot incentive to make future variations of Minecraft Xbox and or Windows-solely and, sadly, its assertion on the subject isn’t reassuring to say the least. Here’s the assertion from Mojang on improvement for numerous platforms:
There’s no purpose for the event, gross sales, and help of the PC/Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Vita, iOS, and Android variations of Minecraft to cease. Of course, Microsoft can’t make selections for different corporations or predict the alternatives that they could make sooner or later.
We’re extraordinarily pleased with all editions and the superior issues you've gotten achieved by means of enjoying collectively.
That’s removed from a promise that Microsoft will certainly hold the sport alive on all platforms, and in addition up within the air is the place the corporate’s present staff and tasks will find yourself after the deal. For now, variations of the sport are nonetheless out there to obtain for Mac and iOS.
