Microsoft’s Minecraft server could have a big future
Microsoft is looking to bring Minecraft to the cloud and the first step in that goal is to offer it to Windows and Xbox users.
The Xbox One version of Minecraft was one of the most popular games on the console last year and it seems likely that Microsoft would want to make it available to users of the Xbox One as well.
Microsoft is offering the game for free on Windows 10 PCs and Macs and the Xbox Marketplace for Xbox One users.
The Marketplace version of the game includes a free version that includes a Minecraft server for the first time in years.
Microsoft’s server farm is a small part of its Minecraft business that runs Minecraft servers on Azure.
Microsoft also recently announced that it will begin selling Minecraft subscriptions for Windows 10 and Windows Server.
Microsoft has also said that it plans to introduce a cloud-based version of its game soon.
Minecraft servers are just one way that Microsoft is trying to compete with Minecraft, which has been a huge success for Microsoft, particularly on the PC.
Microsoft owns a sizable chunk of the PC gaming market, which is estimated at over a billion units sold this year.
Microsoft and Valve co-own the popular Steam platform, which allows gamers to play Minecraft on PCs, Macs, Linux, and iOS devices.
Microsoft bought Minecraft developer Mojang for $2.5 billion in January and is working on a new version of it for the Xbox.
Microsoft will also be releasing a free app for Windows called Minecraft for Windows on April 1, which will be a free update for Windows 7 users.
