Minecraft Net Worth 2023; Founder, History, Stats (Updated)

Minecraft stands out among the games that have experienced continued growth in popularity after their release a decade ago.

The average video game has a lifespan of two years or less, but Minecraft has attracted millions of new players each year, and it has also re-engaged older players.

How it all Started?

Minecraft was developed by Markus ‘Notch’ Persson in 2009. He works as a game developer and was previously employed by King.

Even before it was officially launched, Minecraft received a great deal of attention.

When the game was officially launched, Notch gave Jens Bergensten creative control of the game, a position he has held for over a decade.

About the Founder

Markus “Notch” Persson became wealthy after Microsoft acquired the Minecraft rights.

Following 15 million sales across all consoles, Microsoft purchased Minecraft from Persson in September 2014 at a cost of $2.5 billion.

Since then, Persson has been traveling around the globe, coding new games whenever he can.
