Minecraft has also ended up selling 144 million copies across the combined platforms it's made its debut on, which is pretty special, when you think about it.

Microsoft may have seemed bonkers to shell out a staggering $2.5 billion to acquire Mojang, the developer behind Minecraft, around three and a half years ago, but on hindsight it's looking like a smart play.

That new record high comes just shortly after Minecraft rolled out its 'Better Together' update to enable cross-platform play between Xbox One, mobile, VR, and Windows 10 devices and, eventually, Nintendo Switch as well.

Minecraft's popularity isn't limited to Microsoft's platforms like Xbox and Windows though, recently Nintendo revealed the best-selling Switch games and Minecraft took the top spot in Japan, which has been notoriously hard for Microsoft in the past. Now his previous role has been taken up by Helen Chiang, who served as Booty's operations head. After all, Minecraft is now available on nearly every platform, including PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Switch, 3DS, Wii U, and even mobile devices. In addition, the goal is to continue to expand features in the game starting with the upcoming Aquatic update. "When I think about what's next for us-well, my job is really not to change the plan that we're on, but to focus on a number of different things".
