Minecraft is one of the most popular genre games in Sandbox, and it was developed by Markus Persson, a Swedish developer. The game was released by Mojang in 2011 and was later purchased in 2014 by Microsoft Studios.
Minecraft is also one of the best-selling video games selling over 180 million copies. There are various platforms for the game. The rumours of the game being shut down have started to spread from the last few days.
According to a number of publications, the game is expected to close on December 21, 2020, a cause of concern for many Minecraft lovers.
The story mode of the game was under the hood of the Telltale Games.
Minecraft’s team has announced in an official blog post that the developer is no longer working with Minecraft: Story Mode. Well, the game has been pulled into the story mode which doesn’t mean the game will shut down because millions love it and if Mojang shut it down it will be a mistake.
Well, it seems pretty weird to think why this magnitude is going to close a game. In May 2019, Minecraft also sold 159 million copies, which is a huge number, according to the Statista website. According to Daniel Ahmad, a top analyst of the video game industry in China alone, Minecraft has 300 million registered accounts.
Back to the shutdown rumour, the number of sales is huge and the base of the player is large. It won’t happen. In addition, Minecraft collected $110 million in sales with Microsoft in 2018 and the game saw only a constructive plot in 2019 story mode that certainly would have increased its sales.
