Markus Persson in the News
The image my group was assigned was of Markus Persson, the creator of “Minecraft”. The 35 year old co-founder of the popular gaming company, Mojang, is currently in the throws a $2billion sale. The sale of “Minecraft” could be finalized as soon early as the end of September, making Persson the newest millionaire in the gaming scene, according to Forbes. Mojang plans to sell their best selling game to Microsoft, who does not seem to consider the high price a deal breaker (considering the fact that the game remains in the top-ten since its 2009 debut). Although the success of Mojang is largely due to the success of Minecraft, the company’s worth remains high due to the rights to the popular game.
