It’s finally happened, people! After 10 years, Minecraft has broken through to become the top dog in individual video game sales, beating out Tetris’ nearly 35 year reign with 176 million sales. The third place game, Grand Theft Auto V, trails behind at a sizable 110 million copies sold.
When the numbers were last updated seven months ago, Minecraft still trailed behind by ~20 million copies, but today that all changed. Engadget reported the news and Wikipedia was updated, making this 10 year Anniversary one that’s really momentous.
Congratulations to Mojang, Microsoft, and the Minecraft team on yet another monumental milestone crushed! Now the question is, will Minecraft Earth see the same kind of success?
