The game will soon be 15 years old
It has long been known that Minecraft is one of the best-selling and most successful video games of all time. It’s been over two years since Mojang Studios last updated players on how many copies of Minecraft it had sold since the game’s debut in May 2009.
During this year’s Minecraft Live event, Mojang Studios announced that Minecraft has sold over 300 million copies worldwide across all platforms. At the same time, Mojang Studios is preparing to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Minecraft, which will come in May 2024.
Minecraft has already sold more than 300,000,000 copies
“As we approach our 15th anniversary, Minecraft remains one of the best-selling games of all time, with over 300 million copies sold, a milestone no one could have dreamed of when we all posted our first blocks. , said Helen Chan, head of Mojang Studios. “Our incredible community has made Minecraft what it is today. We can’t wait to share new Minecraft content and experiences in the years to come.”
Mojang Studios’ Lydia Winters took to the Minecraft Live stage to announce that all of 2024 will be a celebration of Minecraft’s 15th anniversary, but details are being kept under wraps for now.
