Minecraft hits 5.2 million sales, still a secret yet to find, says Notch

Thursday, 8th March 2012 10:20 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Markus ‘Notch’ Persson has confirmed that Minecraft has now sold 5.2 million units since it first went into a public alpha state in 2009.

But speaking at a GDC interview session, conducted by SpyParty developer Chris Hecker, the Mojang co-founder spilled that there’s still one secret left in the game that has eluded even hardcore players.

He also explained why there was no female character model in the game.

“It ends up being extremely sexist,” he said.

Now you know. Thanks, IGN.

    Interesting….I am sure there is a lot more stuff I haven’t done in the game yet and I have been playing daily for more than a year. Such an awesome game IMHO!

    I actually like that the model can be pretty much whatever you want it to be once skinned.
