Mojang has sold more than 20 million copies of Minecraft, which runs across modern smartphones, Xbox Live and standard PCs. Sales happen digitally rather than through brick-and-mortar stores like GameStop.
This has proved very good business for Mojang, located on a side street in Stockholm. Last year the company made about $90 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization on revenue of $235 million, according to people familiar with the matter and since confirmed by the company.
That is an amazing sum – $3 million in profit per employee. Working at Mojang must be pretty sweet.
