Minecraft Hits 500,000 Sold Mark

Micecraft is all the rage right now, and the indie title recently hit 500,000 copies sold. With almost 1.6 million registered users, developer Mojang AB has been pretty busy trying to keep up.

“We have had a lot to do lately with setting up an office and making sure we work with the right people,” Mojang AB business manager Daniel Kaplan said via press release. “We believe that we have found really great development teams that will help us make Minecraft even better.”

Mojang AB plans on reinvesting in Minecraft to keep delivering updated content, starting with a special Halloween update on Oct. 31. The update will add new features like the “The Slip” underworld which will allow players to teleport to the new world and fight new enemies like the fire-spewing Ghasts (pictured above).

I’ve yet to play Minecraft, but the things people have done in the world sure have me interested in downloading it.
