Minecraft is a single player game. A Microsoft account was not required when I bought it. It's a requirement they added later. Asking your customers to do this years after the fact is unreasonable.

I don't want a Microsoft account and I'm not making one. How do I play my game?

  • "Asking your customers to do this years after the fact is unreasonable" Well yeah if it wasn't bought by Microsoft.

  • This is asked constantly. I don't agree with this solution, but something did have to change about the accounts. The number of hacked Mojang accounts i saw was absolutely insane, microsoft accounts have (mostly) eliminated this issue. Jun 15, 2022 at 4:16

There is no other way to play Minecraft officially on that account unless you link your Microsoft account.

  • @Wipqozn I'm not sure what you removed, but out of curiosity I looked through the answer history, and there was no changes to the text. The current text is the one posted initially.
