Mojang becomes indie games publisher

The ascent of Minecraft studio Mojang knows no bounds – a multi-million dollar franchise, a fanbase to envy, an event and growing merchandise business…

And now it’s a third-party publisher too, helping bring another indie studio’s game to market.

Mojang has signed up Cobalt from Oxeye Game Studios. It’s the first game produced independent of Mojang for the firm to release.

"Early on, even as we were founding Mojang, we talked about the idea of collaborating with other indie game studios to release more great games," said a statement from the firm.
