Mojang is ending the development of Scrolls

In all honesty, I didn’t know much about Scrolls, aside from it being a new project that caused Zenimax to attempt to sue Mojang.  In the end, I think that the settlement that came out from that may be part of the reason that Microsoft is having Mojang discontinue that game.  From what I can tell, usually when you license something, such as the ‘Scrolls’ trademark, you have to pay a fee of some sort.  Between that, and their cash cow being Minecraft, not Scrolls tells me that this probably was going to happen in the not so distant future after the acquisition was finished.
