Yep. Minecraft earned Mojang a ton of money over the holidays, there’s no doubt about that. In fact, the indie sensation brought in $1,000,000 with its portable edition on one platform during just Christmas Day.
Daniel Kaplan of Mojang tweeted the news.
Holy mother of God. MCPE on @AppStore had 1 million usd in revenue during Christmas day. And we were only no3 on top grossing in USA. Crazy!

$1,000,000 for Minecraft: Pocket Edition on only one of several potential platforms. That’s a whole lot of scratch, and it doesn’t even include the PC and console versions of the game.
That’s insanity, my friends. People sure love Minecraft, and all those new tablet and phone owners went nuts with the game after getting their gifts on Christmas.
