That deal for Mojang is going through, and Notch is leaving the company. In his announcement, Persson said,

I don't see myself as a real game developer. I make games because it's fun, and because I love games and I love to program, but I don't make games with the intention of them becoming huge hits, and I don't try to change the world. Minecraft certainly became a huge hit, and people are telling me it's changed games. I never meant for it to do either. It's certainly flattering, and to gradually get thrust into some kind of public spotlight is interesting.

As soon as this deal is finalized, I will leave Mojang and go back to doing Ludum Dares and small web experiments. If I ever accidentally make something that seems to gain traction, I'll probably abandon it immediately.

Meanwhile, Microsoft celebrates their huge acquisition in the video above.

Minecraft: Story Mode will be a standalone game based on the Minecraft world, with an all new original story told in a narrative and choice driven episodic series.  The collaboration between Mojang and Telltale has come about to satisfy a "massive demand for fiction set in the Minecraft universe."  You can learn more about it by playing Info Quest II on the Mojang Blog.

The game is due out some time in 2015.

During the Oculus' second virtual reality conference, Oculus Connect 2, Oculus Founder and CEO Palmer Luckey announced that Minecraft will make it's way onto the upcoming consumer Oculus Rift.

Luckey took to the stage during the keynote Sept. 24, touting the upcoming experiences that consumers could expect from the device which is set to release in the first quarter of 2016. But his big announcement, which he yelled to the audience, was that the open world, block-building, resource-driven, social phenomenon Minecraft is coming to virtual reality.

It's not a huge surprise, given that Oculus has been working extensively with Microsoft, who owns Minecraft.

Unfortunately for Oculus, the announcement didn't show anything near as amazing as Microsoft's demonstration of their Hololens augmented reality tech working with Minecraft at last E3.

Luckey didn't give any specific details on date or price, so we'll just have to keep waiting for more.

Since early 2012 modder Killerx20, along with the help of some others, has been working on the project. He has finally released his recreation and it is incredible. You can download the map right here!

"As a lot are probably wondering," Killerx20 writes, "yes, more then 85% of this build WAS indeed hand-placed. The only things that were not are the outer plates, tower, and reactors BUT that doesn't mean they were completed when imported, they were basically detail-less empty shells and I wanted it that way so everything on/inside them had to be hand placed for optimal detail."
