Markus “Notch” Persson recently revealed via Twitter that the PC, Mac and Linux versions of Minecraft, the indie sandbox title, have crossed 11 million units sold.

“That’s more than the number of atoms in the observable universe,” Persson stated before later saying that, “My team of scientists are informing me that my last tweet is wrong by a factor of 10^73.”

Regardless, coupled with the 10 million units sold on Android and iOS, and you have one of the biggest indie franchises in the industry today. And this hasn’t escaped the attention of some parties, as offers have been made for Minecraft by various organizations.

“I frequently receive emails from people who want to ‘help monetize http://minecraft.net.’ My reply is usually ‘No’, sometimes ‘Go away’. Latest hopeful partner was avg, offering us 20k upfront to bundle it with the Minecraft launcher. No. Not as long as I work here.”

Minecraft is slated to release for the Xbox One, though a release date and further console exclusive details are still to be announced.
