Minecraft is one of the most popular games ever, so Mojang and Microsoft continue to work on new things to keep their millions of users active. If you’re one of them, you should know that a major game change is imminent.
In case you don’t remember, in 2020 it was announced that Minecraft: Java Edition and Mojang accounts would gradually migrate to the Microsoft ecosystem, so a company account will be necessary to continue enjoying that version of the game.
Well, the tipping point is drawing near and there’s already a migration deadline. So it is better that you are prepared so that you can continue enjoying the title and future releases of the franchise without problems.

You will need a Microsoft account to continue enjoying Minecraft
The change from Mojang accounts to Microsoft accounts will be done for security and platform integration reasons. Thus, a Microsoft account will be required to log in and play Minecraft: Java Edition, as well as to use the Minecraft launcher on PC.
The companies revealed that gamers will have until March 10 this year to voluntarily migrate their Mojang account to a Microsoft account. After that date, everyone interested in playing Minecraft: Java Edition will have to do so directly with a Microsoft account.
If the voluntary migration is not done, players will not be able to continue enjoying the title until they have an account with the company. Fortunately, the process is free, and all players who complete it will be rewarded with a cape for their characters.
How to migrate your Mojang account to continue playing Minecraft?
First of all, if you don’t have a Microsoft account, it’s a good idea to create one before the deadline mentioned above. To do this, simply visit this link and choose the option “Create a Microsoft account” and follow the steps to complete the process.
Next, you will need to go to the Minecraft launcher or the official Minecraft site where there will be an option to complete the migration for free. It is important to note that you will retain all of your Minecraft: Java Edition content and progress.
Once you do, your Microsoft account will work for you to play Minecraft: Java Edition, Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, Minecraft Dungeons and other launches from the Microsoft launcher.
The migration will allow you to activate the 2-step verification, which means that your account and all your content will be better protected. Finally, you should know that your Mojang account will no longer serve you after completing the process.
