Microsoft's Minecraft purchase showing validation with PC sales reaching 20 Million


The developer Mojang, has stated on their website that they've sold just over 20 million copies of the incredibly popular game: Minecraft. Furthermore, the company sold 10,364 copies in just the last 24 hours! The total figure across all platforms tops an amazing 70 million copies.

In a tweet, Daniel Kaplan, business developer at Mojang thanked the legions of game fans:

These figures illustrate what a sensible decision it was for Microsoft to buy the game company in Nov. 2014. Not a company to rest on their laurels, Microsoft has discussed further plans to bring the game in to the "holograpic" world.
