Mojang’s business developer Daniel Kaplan has revealed that the company’s smash hit Minecraft has sold 9.2 million copies across its different versions.

Responding to a question from Markus ‘notch’ Persson on if anyone at the company had specific numbers, Kaplan revealed the statistic in a tweet.

That number includes the PC, Xbox Live Arcade, iOS and Android versions of the game. Persson also revealed that the PC version alone had hit 6 million copies sold.

The Xbox 360 version of the game smashed records when it launched and became a profitable endeavour within an hour of its release.
