Lead designer Jens Bergensten tweeted the sales milestone, and hinted that horses would be coming to the game in a future update. Bergensten linked to a "subtle" hint about the main feature in Minecraft 1.6, which was a picture of a horse.

The number encompasses the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of Minecraft. The game had sold 8 million copies as of November 2012.

Last month the long-awaited Minecraft 1.5 "Redstone" update was released, which notably changed the way the game's valuable redstone functioned in the world.

Minecraft has also been a big success on the Xbox 360, with the Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition selling over 6 million copies since its release in spring 2012. Mojang has now said it will consider porting the game to PlayStation.
