‚??Minecraft has now sold six million copies‚?? said Notch on Twitter (https://twitter.com/notch/status/205942610102194176) earlier today. Another milestone smashed. According to the Minecraft site at the precise moment of writing, 6,001,992 copies have been sold, and 29,894,214 people have registered to the site. A version was released on Xbox recently, which seems to have boosted total Minecraft sales quite a bit. Mojang‚??s Daniel Kaplan estimates (https://twitter.com/Kappische/status/205945094795309057) that a grand total of 9.2 million copies have been shifted. In short: there are a lot of bros breaking blocks right now.

The game is still growing. Lead developer Jeb recently released an update snapshot (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/05/24/minecraft-update-snapshot-includes-trading-currency-new-item-and-sandstone-stairs/) to give players an early look at NPC trading and the magical Ender safe. In March, the Financial Times took a look at Mojang‚??s finances and deduced that the company had made a cool $13.5 million in profits (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/03/28/minecraft-makes-80-million-in-15-months/) during its first fifteen months. It looks like Mojang‚??s success is set to continue. Minecraft is still selling well and, from what we‚??ve played Cobalt (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/12/16/mojang-releases-cobalt-alpha-you-can-buy-it/) is shaping up very nicely. Grats to Mojang.
