Mojang Studios: Swedish video game developer
Mojang Studios is a Swedish video game developer and a studio of Xbox Game Studios based in Stockholm. It was founded by Markus Persson in 2009 as Mojang Specifications, inheriting the name from a previous video game venture he left two years prior. Mojang began development on the sandbox game Minecraft that year, which would become the best-selling video game of all time and establish a successful multimedia franchise. Persson, in conjunction with Jakob Porsér, incorporated the business as Mojang AB in late 2010 and hired Carl Manneh as chief executive officer. With a desire to move on from Minecraft, Persson offered to sell his share in Mojang, and the company was wholly acquired by Microsoft through Xbox Game Studios in November 2014. Persson, Porsér and Manneh subsequently left Mojang, with Jonas Mårtensson replacing Manneh. In May 2020, Mojang was rebranded as Mojang Studios.
