Minecraft can be called the miracle of modern gaming industry. A simple mechanic and a small gaming client stuffed all the multi-million exclusives that were developed by huge corporations. Notch made history. As we have said, the game celebrates its 10th anniversary. For this, Microsoft and Mojang announced the following sales figures, and they are shocking.
In 10 years, Minecraft has sold over 176 million copies and continues to successfully disperse around the world. The game has already visited all possible platforms, including smartphones and even PlayStation Vita.
According to the published information, Notch's masterpiece can be considered the best-selling game in history. Technically, of course, Tetris can compete with Minecraft, which, according to calculations made in 2017, has sold over 495 million copies. True, there is one small clarification: the game from Alexey Pazhitnov was released back in 1984. It had 35 years to collect sales.
The developers do not stand still and continue improving the sandbox. Additional games on the Minecraft franchise have already come out and will come out more, including the recent announcement of Minecraft Earth. And what a pity for Notch himself, who, because of his personal opinion and desire for freedom, was not invited to the celebration of the anniversary of his creation.
