Move over Minesweeper?

Here's some news that is sure to make some of you jump up and down. King's immensely popular match-3 mobile title Candy Crush Saga will come pre-installed with every single copy of Windows 10, joining the likes of Minesweeper and Freecell as those default Windows games you play on the school library's computer because everything else is blocked.

"Windows Phone users have been enjoying Candy Crush Saga since its launch on the platform in December, and later this year, all Windows 10 owners will be able to experience the hit game that's swept the mobile world like wildfire," Microsoft wrote. "As an added bonus, Candy Crush Saga will automatically be installed for customers that upgrade to or download Windows 10 for periods of time following the game launch."

If you haven't been living under a rock, you've no doubt heard of King's infamous "patent trolling" shenanigans involving Candy Crush Saga. First there was that whole trying to trademark the word "candy" thing, then there was the unfortunate incident where King went after The Banner Saga for using the word "saga".

Despite all this, the game has been incredibly successful and remains so to this day (seeings as it can afford to pay whatever massive lump of sum it takes to become a Windows default game).

In addition to Candy Crush Saga, Microsoft announced that the rest of King's catalog will be made available to Windows 10 customers.
