30 million Minecraft: Pocket Editions sold

Minecraft

The developers have announced the milestone sales figure, which only covers the mobile versions of the game.

Mojang's massively popular block open-world block building game - Minecraft - has reportedly sold over 30 million copies across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Mojang announced the sales info of Minecraft: Pocket Edition via their website yesterday.

These sales figures will no doubt justify Microsoft spending the $2.5 billion they forked out on the game and development studio last year. Especially considering the PC and Mac version of the game is said to have sold over 18.1 million copies, according to the Minecraft website. And you have to take into account the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PS Vita versions too.
