Minecraft Reaches Over 100M in Sales Globally; Over 40M Players Per Month

on June 2, 2016 10:25 AM

It’s an understatement to say that Minecraft has been a phenomenon since the game’s official release in 2011, though with developer Mojang’s most recent information regarding the massively-popular sandbox title, it’s even easier to say it’s been a massive success and continues to grow each and every day.

In a new update from the studio, Mojang revealed that Minecraft has now exceeded over 100 million in total worldwide sales (giving an exact figure of 106,859,714 copies to date). A pair of infographics were also released by the studio to give more specific details on the breakdown of sales by country and platforms.

The studio also shared that on average since the beginning of 2016, sales of Minecraft are currently around 53,000 copies being sold per day, while over 40 million players worldwide play the game each month. Interestingly enough, that also includes four copies of the game being sold in Antarctica: apparently even there it isn’t cold enough for building and crafting.
