Mojang (literally meaning "gadget") is a Swedish video game developer based in Stockholm. Founded in 2009 by Markus "Notch" Persson, Mojang is best-known for creating the global phenomenon that is ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' -- [[CashCowFranchise the best-selling video game of all time]].

In 2014, Mojang was acquired by Microsoft Studios, now known as Creator/XboxGameStudios, for a record $2.5 billion (for comparison, Microsoft's historic buyout of Creator/{{Rare}} was "only" $375 million). Because ''Minecraft'' was already available for non-Xbox platforms, and because it's such a lucrative franchise, ''Minecraft'' continues to be supported outside of Xbox/Windows to this day and was even the front-runner for crossplay gaming.
