Minecraft hits 10 million users

Creator Markus “Notch” Persson reveals the latest milestone for Mojang’s seemingly unstoppable indie game in a brief blog post. Last month he announced that sales of Minecraft had passed 2.5 million, bringing in an estimated £30 million in revenue despite still being in beta. It is now within touching distance of World Of Warcraft: the hugely popular MMOG had 11.4 million users in March.
