About

Mojang AB is a games studio based in Stockholm, Sweden.

We were founded in 2009 by Markus Persson. He’s also the creator of our best-selling game to date: Minecraft. Since then, we’ve released our second game, Scrolls, and have dabbled in publishing with Oxeye Game Studio’s Cobalt, which is due to release some time soon (though we’ve been saying that for years now). We’re developing more games too, but we’re not ready to talk about those quite yet.

In 2014, Mojang was bought by Microsoft. To date, the acquisition hasn’t changed much about our company; most of us still use Macs, though lots of them are bootcamped.

Though the last bit of 2014 was unexpectedly eventful, we plan to keep our independent spirit and continuing to treat our community with the respect and honesty it deserves. Check out all of our staff members below! You can pester them further on twitter, if you like.
