The future plans of Microsoft related games Mojang have not reported yet, but the company will continue to support Minecraft on all platforms on which the game is available today.

Representatives of Mojang studio have confirmed that its current Director Markus Persson, and the founders Carl Manneh and Jacob Parser leave the company to pursue other projects.

In the message Mojang says that although the creators of Minecraft and proud to be a small game grew into a monumental project, they did not anticipate that it will reach such proportions. The founder and main shareholder of Mojang's Markus Person no longer wants to bear responsibility for it.

Minecraft is one of the most popular franchises in the history of video games. Since the launch in 2009, the developer was able to sell over 50 million copies.
