Minecraft’s Markus Notch Persson has made it clear on his official Tumblr that he will step down as the main designer and leader of Mojang AB. Notch will be transferring the position to Jens Bergensten, the awesome coer for Minecraft and loved among gamers everywhere. As he clearly stated: “He will have the final say in all design decisions, so he will kinda sorta become my boss,” says Notch. “I’ve promised him to not pull rank. ;)”. With that, congrats to Jens and even Notch, who has sold (with the help of the entire Mojang AB team) almost 5 million copies of Minecraft since the alpha, beta, and full releases.
