Mojang have announced that their unbelievably popular sandbox game, Minecraft has sold over 100 million copies worldwide (technically the number is over 106,859,714, but by now Mojang have probably sold another extra hundred thousand copies). The developers have released an infographic detailing the number of sales on each platform in five continents.
One of the more surprising facts in this infographic is that the console version of Minecraft accounts for most of the sales. This may not be too surprising to a lot of people as Minecraft has been released on six different platforms, but the strange thing is that the earliest Xbox 360 version to be released was back in 2012. Only in the past two years has Minecraft been available on every other console, so to have that many sales already is seriously impressive.
“We’d like to offer our heartfelt thanks to every one of you who’s bought Minecraft over the past few years, no matter which platform you play on,” says Mojang in their. “We’re constantly in awe of our community and the amazing things you achieve together. You really are the best. <3”
