Minecraft’s gravy train keeps rolling, as Mojang doubled its earning in its second financial year, MCV Nordic reports.

Despite only having one released title, the Swedish studio made a profit of around 60 million SEK, which is almost 7.2 million Euro.

Other released information relates to Minecraft Xbox 360, which sells around 17,000 copies a day.

Last year, proceeds from Minecraft went to its creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, but now it all goes back into Mojang, which is current developing card game scrolls, and the shooter Cobalt.
