Minecraft PC has 100 million users, 14.3 million copies sold

The big numbers keep coming for Mojang

Mojang founder Markus "Notch" Persson has announced that the PC version of Minecraft has racked up 100 million registered users.

That is the number of people who have created free Minecraft accounts - a required step in downloading the Minecraft demo from the official Mojang site.


Persson has also announced that the game has achieved a "14.3% conversion rate to paid accounts", meaning around 14.3 million of those registered users went on to purchase the full game.

Mojang had announced the game had sold 13 million copies at the end of December 2013, and 14 million copies by February 3, suggesting a still significant rate of sales for the game released in November 2011.

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.

Plans for Xbox One, PS4 and Vita versions of Minecraft were announced in August 2013.
