Microsoft acquired the Minecraft franchise and developer Mojang in September in a big deal worth $2.5 billion. Since then, the massively popular sandbox game has gotten even bigger, with Microsoft announcing 121 million sales and 55 million monthly players earlier this year.
The game is regularly supported with new DLC and updates, including Power Rangers content that came out at the end of March. More recently, Microsoft announced a real-money marketplace for Minecraft, while the game is coming to another platform, Nintendo Switch, in May.
In August 2015, Spencer talked about his broad vision for Minecraft, saying Microsoft has no immediate plans to make Minecraft 2, though it could happen eventually.
