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.
