Minecraft PC version sells 14 million copies

Mojang hits yet another sales milestone

The PC version of Minecraft has passed the 14 million copies sold mark.

The news was tweeted by Mojang founder and Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson over the weekend.

Mojang had announced the game had sold 13 million copies at the end of December 2013, implying that another million copies have been sold in a little over a month.

The company also recently announced sales of 10 million copies of the Xbox 360 version and one million copies of the PlayStation 3 version, the latter having hit the million milestone after only five weeks on sale.

Minecraft was announced for PS4 and Vita in August 2013. The company has said on Twitter that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are further back in its development queue.

Meanwhile, the Xbox One version of Minecraft was announced at E3 in June. Building off the 360 version, it promises "larger maps for more complex structures, expanded multiplayer features and enhanced gameplay".
