Microsoft has announced this morning that it will be acquiring Mojang, the game studio behind Minecraft, for $2.5 billion. The wildly popular game is available on many different devices and is one of the most popular games of all time. 

It’s an interesting purchase for Microsoft, but the IP is highly valuable and the company will likely use the game to leverage many of its platforms.
