Microsoft faces “Minecraft” backlash

In 2021 alone, the mobile version of the popular “Minecraft” video game generated $160.7 million in global IAP revenue. This represents an increase of 12.68% over the previous year. Interestingly enough, the video game is only on the rise despite its age – partly due to its acquisition by Microsoft (MSFT) – Get the Microsoft Corporation report in 2014 for $2.5 billion.

Recently, a new game update was released called 1.19.1 with a host of new features to improve it. But the announcement faced immediate backlash, with floods of tweets expressing disgust with Microsoft. This now leaves gamers and fans alike in uncertainty as to the future of the beloved game.
