Already the best-selling game of all time, Minecraft’s sales are now even more impressive.
According to The Verge, the game Minecraft has long been famous as the best-selling video game of all time. Now its reputation has grown even higher with the announcement that it has sold a staggering 300 million copies.
“As we approach its 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,” said Helen Chiang, who head of Mojang Studios, said in a statement
livestream event The impressive milestone was announced during Minecraft Live 2023, a Minecraft aimed at sharing news and community updates. Besides, this is also an event that brings a small voting round, where players can nominate which new creatures will be added to the game. This year, the choices are a crab, an armadillo, and a penguin.
300 million sales Minecraft has eclipsed the sales of most other entertainment media. To put it simply, for example, the best-selling album Thriller of all time by legendary Michael Jackson, only sold about 70 million copies. The best-selling game console is the PlayStation 2, with only 155 million units sold. Even the second best-selling video game of all time, Grand Theft Auto V, doesn’t even come close to Minecraft’s numbers, with reported sales of 185 million.
It can be seen that Minecraft is on a completely different level and will probably stay there for a very long time, or at least until Half-Life 3 comes out
