Mojang "Looks Like We Are Going To Outsell The Sims"
The Minecraft team is not selling out though
by Tim Smith
Minecraft maker Mojang is made of people who love what they do and will not be selling up any time soon, this is especially true given the statement recently made by co-founder, Carl Manneh.
"It looks like we are going to outsell The Sims in one or two years if things progress", he pointed out. Thankfully though this has not gone to his head. There's not going to be any selling out to big publishers soon.
In terms of selling out the company name and game IP and exiting to pursue new challenges, says Manneh, "An exit would be huge, but do we really need that money? In our case, we have the cash flow. We have more money than we need."
"We've always felt that the independence we have is one of our core strengths. We can take decisions by going into a room and in 15 minutes we're done. We try to be extremely agile, to release games quickly."
