20 million in 7 months? Minecraft is still selling like hotcakes.

Saw these numbers on ResetEra.

Sales:
176 million - mid of May 2019
154 million - end of September 2018
144 million - mid of January 2018
122 million - end of February 2017

MAU:
91 million - end of September 2018
74 million - mid of January 2018
55 million - end of February 2017

F2P China Version:
200 million - mid of May 2019
150 million - end of October 2018
100 million - mid of May 2018

- Released in 2009, purchased by Microsoft in 2014 at 60 million sales.

- Now at 176 million sales in 2019, in 4 months Minecraft will have been under Microsoft longer than it was independently owned.

- Which means in 5 years it did 60 million under Mojang, under Microsoft in 5 years it's done 116 million.

How much left is there to cover the 2 billion Microsoft spent on this franchise? I wonder how much Microsoft got it's money back currently ah?

They got it all back, +110 million sales alone + education version and Chinese free to play version + merchandise + other minecraft related games + the DLC/mash packs and monthly realms that cost 5$ for a month and has milllions of subscribers.

Wow. I remember the reaction to the purchase back in the day. It was supposed to be the worst purchase in gaming history. Look at what Microsoft have turned Minecraft into....

Now the AR Minecraft is coming, it's not going to slow down either. No wonder some of the executives at Microsoft get paid the big bucks.



We can scratch IOI Interactive from the list of possible Microsoft purchases now, they're hiring a Business Developer to find new partners, stakeholders and talk up being independent and expanding their own publishing potential.

Seems like every studio they were rumoured to be purchasing has basically been confirmed not happening at this point, makes me wonder if we'll even get any studio acquisitions at E3.

Klob talking about the FH4 Expansion.

Spoiler!
Biggest FH expansion yet, "almost like a new game", from what I know based on a globally-known IP, can't verify though.

Why UK ip? I know it takes place there but hot wheels has nothing to do with Australia.

I forgot about hot wheels. They could take this expansion anywhere.
