Mojang Sells 9.2 Million Copies Of Minecraft

Mojang may have found a diamond in Minecraft. According to a tweet by both Creator Markus Persson and Mojang’s business developer Daniel Kaplan, the popular sandbox title has sold 9.2 million copies across all platforms.

The PC version of the game sold roughly 6 million copies while the mobile version of the game (available on iOS and Android)  sold 700,000 as of January. The recently released Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sold around 400,000 copies on the first day, returning development costs in just 60 minutes. Since then, the game has seen sales that could garner it the title of  “fastest selling Xbox Live title in history” in the near future.
