 Yes, the deal is real. Mojang is being bought by Microsoft. It was reassuring to see how many of your opinions mirrored those of the Mojangstas when we heard the news. Change is scary, and this is a big change for all of us. It’s going to be good though. Everything is going to be OK. <3

Notch the Founder of Minecraft is leaving Mojang:

 I love you. All of you. Thank you for turning Minecraft into what it has become, but there are too many of you, and I can’t be responsible for something this big. In one sense, it belongs to Microsoft now. In a much bigger sense, it’s belonged to all of you for a long time, and that will never change. It’s not about the money. It’s about my sanity.

What a big day for Mojang and all the fans of Minecraft all around the world, including me, this is big and I know a lot of people are angry about this acquisition, let’s just hope that Microsoft don’t fuck this game up.
