Mojang Shuts Down Scrolls, The Only Other Game They Make


Once Swedish game developer Mojang was responsible for just one game: Minecraft. Then, suddenly, they became responsible for two games: Minecraft and Scrolls, a card battle strategy game. A baby changes everything.

There was only one way out of this. After much deliberation, Mojang has decided to shoot the newer baby in the head and focus all their attention on the bigger of the two siblings. Scrolls was never very popular during its one year of existence, and this likely had something to do with the decision to suspend further resources on it. There’s also the fact that between the time the game launched and now, Mojang became 100% owned by Microsoft, a company that never wastes cash on anything (uhh, actually never mind).

“After much deliberation,” said Mojang, “we’ve come to an important decision that we’d like to share: Echoes will be the last major content patch for Scrolls. We won’t be adding features or sets from now on, though we are planning to keep a close eye on game balance.”

Despite the lack of updates, Mojang plans to keep the Scrolls servers running for at least an entire year, with plans to shut them off on July 1, 2016.
