The Xbox Live Arcade version of Minecraft has officially sold in excess of 2 million copies since its launch in early May.

The announcement was made earlier today by Chris Charla, portfolio director for XBLA at Microsoft Game Studios, via Twitter. “I guess I can officially mention Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has crossed 2,000,000 in sales on XBLA,” Charla tweeted.

Released on XBLA on May 9, the title sold over a million units in its first week of sales.
