It's official, Minecraft has made over $80 million in revenue in a little over 15 months. This has been confirmed when Mojang filed their finances in Sweden. Minecraft first began to be available for purchase during its Alpha stage which was in Octorber 2010, and in no time, it has managed to have 25 million registered users, and 5,366849 games sold and counting. This is extremely impressive for a game that hasn't finished developing until last November.
I was one of the people who bought Minecraft when it first became available. I tried the game out during a Free-To-Play weekend and I instantly knew I had to buy it. Minecraft is already being ported to other platforms, such as Android and Xbox 360, and Mojang has also been working on multiple projects such as Scrolls, and Cobalt. I really hope all the other game will do as well as Minecraft did.
