Minecraft Has Sold 30 Million Copies On PC Alone

More copies sold on just one platform than many franchises manage put together.

Minecraft is one of the most successful games ever made. It’s so successful that it has sold more on one platform alone than many games manage to sell across every single system they release on. For instance, the official Minecraft website tracks the total sales of the game on PC so far—and that number has officially crossed 30 million.

For context, that would mean more than almost every Call of Duty game, more than the pre-Grand Theft Auto 5 games in that series, more than either Red Dead Redemption or Red Dead Redemption 2, more than Fallout 4, more than any Pokemon game except for Red/Blue, more than any Mario Kart game except for Mario Kart Wii, and… I could go on, but I think you get the point. This was achieved on just one platform alone, while most games I named are multiplatform.

Minecraft should only continue to move from strength to strength going forward, especially with the game hitting Game Pass, and divesting itself of its controversial creator.
