Minecraft continues to be a highly popular game, and that extends to its Windows 10 version. Microsoft has announced that the Windows 10 Edition Beta of the sandbox game has been the "number one grossing paid game in the Windows 10 store" since if first launched alongside the OS in late July 2015.

While Microsoft didn't offer any specific sales numbers for the $9.99 Windows 10 version of Minecraft, it did state:

"Nearly 1 million Minecraft players have taken advantage of the offer to get the Windows 10 version free if you already own Minecraft for PC."

Microsoft says it will continue to update Minecraft for Windows 10 in 2016, but specific details were not announced.
