Minecraft reaches 100 million downloads in China

Approaching 250 million downloads worldwide

Minecraft has reached over 100 million registered users in China less than 12 months after it launched.

The free-to-play version of Mojang's genre-defining builder was brought to China on PC in August 2017, quickly followed an iOS release in September, and finally an Android version in October; there is no console version available in the region.

Published by tech giant NetEase, in collaboration with Microsoft, the free-to-play downloads are in addition to the 144 million sales figure announced earlier this year, putting Minecraft on around 250 million downloads worldwide.

Developer Mojang recently announced however that it won't be releasing anymore significant updates for the last-gen console versions of Minecraft.
