The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft is in discussion to buy Mojang, the studio behind the smash hit Minecraft. While Minecraft creator Markus Persson has been outspoken about his love for Mojang being a completely independent, even when he was offered a job at Valve just to continue working on the game.
Microsoft is rumored to have offered $2 Billion 100 percent of the company with Persson still having a huge involvement in the game. In 2013, Minecraft made $326 million in revenue alone. If a deal is reach, it will probably happen sometime this week. Only time will tell.
