Previously, mash-up content from other games like Mass Effect and Skyrim have all entered the Minecraft world, where players got character skins, textures and more from such crossovers.
"You got your Halo in our Minecraft, and it could't be sweeter! RT @HaloWaypoint: Yes, this is happening," confirmed the tweet from Microsoft Studios. Mojang, the developers of Minecraft tweeted, "@HaloWaypoint Chiiiiiiiiiieeef!"
Minecraft has done extremely well as game garnering praise from the critics and doing well in sales too. It has sold very well on all the platforms - crossing 12 million sales on the Xbox 360, 15 million on PC, 21 million on mobile devices like iOS and Android. There will be further boost to its sale as the game is expected to be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita platforms. Mojang made more than $300 million in revenue and $128 million in profit.
Meanwhile, the game was praised by gaming industry veteran, Peter Molyneux, who is known for developing Fable, Dungeon Keeper, Populous. He said the reason for Minecraft's success was it broke away from the traditional rules that were attached with game designs.
"There are game-design rules that are carved in stone - about teaching people to play, having objectives, a character, an adversary. Minecraft threw all that away," said Molyneux in an interview with Rolling Stone.
"Some people can't see beyond the rather crude graphics," Molyneux added. "But those are its strongest point. The fact that you quickly get the idea that you can put a block on top of another block means anybody can build anything."or adios. players got character skins and more from them,additionsinging Halo content to Mine.
