"Yes, we’re being bought by Microsoft" https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/ No big deal. Minecraft had some really good years. Now with this legal crap for Bukkit / Spigot we would not see any kind of build server update due to the lack plugins updates I doubt there will be much of a future for Minecraft in our lives. But don't give up. There is so many wonderful games out there now and coming in the future. I think we are more of a family and a pretty decent sandbox / open world gaming community that I think we should consider keeping on that path. So if you have suggestions or games that might be coming in the future that might be worth keeping our eyes on it then please do share. I think the biggest ones will be: Space Engineers Factorio 7 Ways to Die GTA 5 (If PC Users can run their own servers there is so much that will happen here) No Mans Skies Scam Citizen Elite Dangerous (When there is more then just flying) And many many more to keep our eyes on! Big runner up for a more Sandbox creative game for Minecraft to create some amazing stuff would be Blockscape. Amazing developer I think be worth checking it out now that its on steam. Might have a good future and 100x better looking Minecraft like game for people who are more into building.
