Minecraft PC Sales Hit 10 Million Units, New Features Teased
Nothing but good times for developer Mojang.
The hits just keep on rolling for indie developer Mojang, as Minecraft PC recently hit the 10 million sales mark according to a tweet from lead designer and developer Jens Bergensten. He also linked to a picture of a woman with a horse and said it was a hint to one of the main features of the upcoming 1.6 update for the game. Mounts, maybe?
As such, 2012 has been a very lucrative year for Mojang. Not only did Minecraft’s different versions sell more than 15 million copies, but the total revenue for the studio equaled roughly $340 million. This meant roughly $240 million in revenue and $100 million arriving in licensing deals.
And as of now, the future looks even brighter. Along with the 1.6 update, Minecraft will have a series of books and a family based subscription service arriving in the coming months. So what are you waiting for? Get online and get building along with the rest of the world.
