One of the most popular video game franchises of the past few years is on track to potentially become a movie. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to Minecraft, an open world-style game from Swedish indie developer Mojang AB. The game was initially released to the public in 2009 as a developmental version, followed by the official full release in November 2011. It’s a creative game in which players are able to build practically anything they want out of textured cubes in a 3D environment, with multiple modes allowing the player to either fight for survival or let their imagination run wild by simply creating.
