To say that Minecraft has done well for itself would be an understatement. It’s an immensely popular title, selling a huge number of copies across the globe. Microsoft has now released the latest sales figures for the title. More than 176 million copies of Minecraft have been sold across the globe, according to Microsoft.
That’s quite an impressive jump over the number that was released just seven months ago. Microsoft had confirmed at a point in time that it had sold 156 million copies of the game globally. Part of the reason why Minecraft has continued to see interest from customers is because of the updates and improvements that Microsoft has periodically been rolling out.
There has been a free browser version of the game, an online co-op version and now even an augmented reality version that’s called Minecraft Earth. The company also revealed that more than 200 million registered users have been amassed for the China edition while more than 130 million Minecraft Hour of Code sessions have been completed.
It goes without saying that these figures may continue to increase even further, particularly with the augmented reality-focused Minecraft Earth. It does seem to have the potential to take this very popular franchise to new heights.
