It's hardly surprising when you consider that, not only has the game been on the market since 2011, but it's now on virtually any platform you can think of. Regular updates have also ensured there's plenty of new content to check out on a regular basis as well.
In addition to the sales numbers, Minecraft revealed in a follow-up tweet that Minecraft has 55 million monthly players, which is pretty impressive as well. That's up from 40 million monthly players in June of 2016.
