Minecraft celebrates 10 years of creating, exploring and surviving

May 23, 2019 -- Minecraft, the biggest-selling video game of all time, began life as an experimental, free PC download in 2009. It has since sold 176 million copies – making Swedish creator Markus Persson a billionaire.

Minecraft is constantly being updated and improved by a staff of 80 developers in Stockholm. It sells 53,000 copies every day (across 33 platforms) and is played by 91 million people every month.

In 2014, Persson sold Mojang, the company he founded to develop the game, to Microsoft for $2.5 billion – reportedly netting $1.5 billion himself.

Tough competition from newer games like Fortnite, coupled with gaming trends becoming more mobile, has seen Mojang develop “Minecraft Earth”, an augmented reality game for Android and iOS. When released in summer 2019, players will be able bring their 3D creations to life and share them in real world settings.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
