Minecraft has smashed 120m copies milestone

55m monthly players - and growing.

Minecraft continues to be an astonishing success - the sandbox game king has now sold more than 121m copies across all platforms.


55 million people now play every month - that's an increase of 15m from the last tally in June 2016.

Minecraft has also shifted another 21m copies since then, too. It must be the launch of the game's Wii U version.

Microsoft owns Minecraft but continues to support its development across an ever-growing list of platforms - many of them direct competitors to Xbox.

The strategy is clearly paying off, however, and last year the game's console versions only became more profitable via an array of mini-game add-ons.

Ahead of Minecraft, only Tetris now claims to have ever sold more copies.
