Mojang has now sold over 20M copies of Minecraft on PC

Mojang has managed to sell over 20,000,000 copies of Minecraft on PC as of this morning, bringing the remarkably popular sandbox game up into the league of top-sellers like Super Mario Bros.

Mojang has managed to sell over 20,000,000 copies of Minecraft on PC as of this morning, cementing the remarkably popular sandbox game's place among video game sales champs like Skyrimand Super Mario Bros.

That 20M sales figure comes courtesy of Mojang's sales tracker, and does not take into account the millions of copies of Minecraft sold across console and mobile platforms. Mojang had sold roughly 14M PC copies of Minecraft as of last February, and later that year it sold itself to Microsoft in a $2.5 billion deal.

At the time, Gamasutra editor-in-chief Kris Graft noted that Microsoft valued Minecraft so highly because it offered the promise of a massive userbase that continues to expand.

"Microsoft has no intention or expectation for Minecraft unit sales to be slowing down any time soon," wrote Graft. "If it did expect that, it would fall out of line with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's recently-announced platforming strategy, which relies on huge amounts of users."
