As stated by the Microsoft, the Mojang Team will be joining the game studio, which is responsible for games like Halo, Forza, and Fable.

Satya Nadella, Chief Executive, Microsoft said, “Minecraft is more than a great game franchise – it is an open world platform, driven by a vibrant community we care deeply about, and rich with new opportunities for that community and for Microsoft.”
