Microsoft announced sales of Minecraft have hit the 176 million mark, making it the most-sold game ever. According to Wikipedia, the second place is held by Tetris with 170 million copies sold, while Grand Theft Auto V ranks third with 110 million units.
Microsoft announced that it has sold 176 million copies of Minecraft, quite a big hop over the 156 million figure they revealed just seven months ago. Despite more buzz around games like Fortnite, Microsoft has kept the game fresh with things like the Dungeons online co-op, a free browser version, a forthcoming movie and now, an augmented reality version called Minecraft Earth. Microsoft added that it has passed 200 million registered users of the Microsoft China edition and completed 130 million Minecraft "Hour of Code" sessions.
