Minecraft sales have reached the 20 million mark for all platforms.

Earlier this month, it was reported that at the end of 2012, the game had hit the 15 million mark. The Xbox 360 version sold 5,002,370, and the PC version 4,177,843, while the Minecraft Pocket Edition sold 5,899,727 units on both Android and iOS.

Today, Mojang stated that the PC version of the game has now sold 9 million copies.

“About 10 hours ago, Minecraft (PC) hit 9,000,000 sold copies! Which should bring the total for all platforms to… 20 million?” reads the tweet from Jens Bergensten.

Following up on the tweet, Mojang stated that the Pocket Edition is now sitting at 7.3 million sold, and “not slowing down.”

    Wait a minute. How did it jump from 4.18m to 9m on the PC in one month (or even 2, or 4 . . .)? I suspect a reporting error somewhere–before, or now. It’s possible that the exposure the game got on the other platforms drove up sales of the original (and best) version lately, but that much all of a sudden? Christmas?

    @3. The error is your thinking :P The 4 million sales for the pc version was the amount of sales in 2012. So of the 9 million sales that the pc version has, around 4 million were sold last year. Not last month.

    This number must be a lot higher by now. There must be 300 mobile copies floating around my school alone. It’s ridiculously popular in Korea. “Creeper” has become a part of the language. I hear people talking about it on the street.
