Mojang Studios is a Stockholm-based video game company. The studio was created in 2009 by Markus Persson. Mojang started designing the Minecraft sandbox video game in 2009 which would be the most successful gaming series ever. In late 2010, Mojang Requirements became Mojang AB. In 2014, Persson sold Mojang to Xbox Game Studios (then branded as Microsoft Studios) to abandon Minecraft. Mojang changed his name to Mojang Studios in May 2020.
