Minecraft: Pocket Edition sales reach 10 million

The mobile version of Minecraft has hit 10 million sales.


The Minecraft franchise continues to break its own records, with Minecraft: Pocket Edition recently hitting 10 million sales.

The announcement was made on the Mojang website. The post also contained news concerning upcoming content for the Pocket Edition. Menu tweaks, the Minecraft Realms cloud service, and buckets are amongst the new features mentioned.

The sandbox adventure game is available on iOS, Android, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux, and has sold over 17.5 million copies across all platforms.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sold 400,000 copies on launch day, recouping development costs in just one hour. The game went on to sell a total of 1 million copies within the next four days, and knocked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 from the top of the Xbox Live activity chart for one week in October 2012.

The PC version of Minecraft broke the 10 million sales mark in April this year, a figure which includes the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of the game. Developer Mojang has said it will consider porting the game to the PlayStation once the exclusivity contract with Microsoft finishes, although it was not specified which console.
