Minecraft creator Markus Persson, or as everyone else knows him, Notch, has revealed the Minecraft has just reached the 2.5 million units sold milestone. "That's as much as Diablo 1 and FarCry, according to Wikipedia," tweeted the indie dev.

Minecraft is set for release on Android phones, first on the Xperia play, and also on Xbox Live Arcade in the near future. Notch will be working as a designer on both projects, but will not be doing any of the programming.

There's also a MinecraftCon planned, as such the final release date for the game is being pushed back. However, there's been difficulty securing a solid venue for the con which is slated for November 11, 2011.

Thanks IndustryGamers.
