Reports of Microsofts plans to acquire Mojang, creator of the Minecraft video game franchise, surfaced earlier this week, shortly after Apples iPhone 6 event. Reuters now reports that the surprise deal is said to be worth $2.5 billion, and Microsoft will announce the acquisition on Monday. While there are a number of reasons Microsoft might want to secure the rights to Minecraft, some analysts and developers believe it could be related to Windows Phone.
