More Than 10 Million Copies of Minecraft – Pocket Edition Sold To-Date

Minecraft developer Mojang announced that Minecraft – Pocket Edition for Android and iOS devices, has sold more than 10 million copies to-date. The portable version of Mojang's popular sandbox building game joins other versions of the game – PC and XBLA which have sold millions upon millions of copies to-date. It just goes to show that people never get tired of a game that is decent and is constantly updated by its creators.

"We are very thankful to all the support that we have gotten and people playing and talking about our game," said Mojang's Daniel Kaplan.

Kaplan goes on to say that selling ten million copies is cool but fans really want to know where the next update to the portable version of the game is at:

"So…I know what you are thinking. 'Yeah, 10m is cool but where is the next update?' We have been working hard on restructuring the backend of a lot of things for Minecraft – Pocket Edition to make future updates smoother."

The original PC version of the game hit the same milestone on April 4 this year and in 2012 Mojang and 4J Studios sold more than 15 million downloads of the game across PC, mobile and XBLA.
