Though only officially released last December, Mojang has announced that they will no longer be releasing content patches or updates to the digital card game they've been working on since 2011. The team noted in their farewell post that they will continue to keep an eye on game balance, perhaps stepping in to make minor adjustments if necessary.
Explaining the reasoning behind this decision, the team stated that, "the  launch of the Scrolls beta was a great success. Tens of thousands of players battled daily, and many of them remain active today. Unfortunately, the game has reached a point where it can no longer sustain continuous development."
The final update to Scrolls released earlier this month to a warm reception from fans. The massive expansion, titled Echoes, added 60 scrolls, replays, custom matches, and a new game mode called Judgement.
Mojang will continue to sell Scrolls and has guaranteed that the servers will continue to run until July 1, 2016. After that, the future of Scrolls will be up in the air. They have also said that sales of Scrolls will go toward keeping the game running for as long as possible.
The Minecraft developer was recently bought by Microsoft for $2 billion. It is possible that the new ownership played into the decision to close down development on Scrolls.
