Minecraft on PC surpasses 30m sales

In total, all editions of the game combined have sold over 150m

The PC version of Minecraft has sold over 30 million units since its 2009 launch.

A tracker on the Minecraft website has been keeping tabs on the number of sales and passed the milestone earlier today.

Across all platforms, Microsoft revealed last October that the game had sold over 154 million copies and was seeing 91 million monthly active users.

That number does not include 150 million downloads in China also as of October, where the game was published in August of 2017 by NetEase first on PC, and then on iOS and Android. In total, that puts the game at over 250 million users across all platforms worldwide.

For the record: A previous version of this article mistakenly read that Minecraft was published by Tencent in China. It is actually published by NetEase, as corrected above.
