Mojang, founded in 2009 by Markus Persson, started as a one-person indie studio working on Minecraft. Originally Mojang Specifications, it adopted its name from a previous venture of Markus. The success of Minecraft led to rapid growth, prompting Markus to sell to Microsoft for $2.5 billion in 2014. Now a subsidiary of Xbox Studios, Mojang expanded its team and released Minecraft spin-offs. For the latest Mojang news, follow eXputer.
