Minecraft – the blocky builder, which rose to prominence in 2011 – has sold 122 million copies worldwide, developer Mojang announced. The company also noted that 55 million players are logging in every month.
As Gamasutra points out, the game’s last official sales figures – which were released in June 2016 – sat at 106 million. That means the game has been sold 16 million times in the eight months since that news.

It’s unclear which platform these new purchases have gone towards. Last year, 19 percent of players in the US picked the game up on PC, while 41 and 40 percent grabbed it on mobile and console respectively. In Europe, 29 percent opted for PC, with 36 and 35 percent for mobile and console.
Minecraft has been released on multiple systems since its launch in 2011, including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.
