Despite launching in 2011, Mojang’s sandbox title is still incredibly popular.
Mojang’s Minecraft has always been a big deal. It’s had tens of millions of players for years and seen numerous updates. To the surprise of perhaps no one, it’s also sold an extraordinary amount. Microsoft and Mojang have confirmed that over 176 million copies have been sold worldwide since the game fully launched in November 2011.
Also, the game’s free release in China has over 200 million registered users. With over 30 million units sold on PC alone, the popularity of Minecraft is simply incredible. It’s available on just about every platform you can think of, from Android and iOS to PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Switch (even Fire OS and Windows Phone).
Minecraft has tons in store for the future. Along with updates and new content, a new AR game called Minecraft Earth is coming to iOS and Android. Mojang is also working on Minecraft: Dungeons, an action adventure dungeon crawler that’s out later this year for PC. Stay tuned for more details on these releases in the coming months.
