The Sandbox design game is a success.
Today it Minecraft celebrating its tenth anniversary, Microsoft and Mojang revealed that so far, the popular game has managed to sell more than 176 million copies Worldwide
This is undoubtedly a spectacular figure and a great jump in relation to the latest report seven months ago where 156 million units were sold.
Minecraft, the best sales of all time
What is striking is that with this amount, Minecraft becomes the best selling game all the time Tetris, which, according to public records, has sold 170 million copies and Grand Theft Auto V, which has sold 110 million units (MSPowerUser).
And although it is difficult to calculate the actual number of sales of Tetris in view of its versions and platforms, it is also emphasized that the 176 million copies of Minecraft only take into account the paid versions, and in fact the version free-to-play "China Edition" already has more than 200 million registered users.
The interesting thing is that this will not end with this, as it will be Minecraft Dungeons and the recently announced Minecraft Earth that seems to be quite popular given that it will follow the Pokémon GO style with Augmented Reality in mobile technology.
