Minecraft is currently the third best-selling game of all time as it’s sold over 54 million copies across PC, Mac, mobile and consoles. There’s also a Minecraft movie on the way and although the game’s developer Mojang was raking it in already, Mojang’s co-founders became filthy, stinking rich last year when Microsoft bought the developer for $2.5 billion.
The game itself is just as mind-boggling as those figures. Some of Minecraft‘s most popular creations include supercomputers that are capable of processing actual data, the entirety of Denmark was once recreated in the game and there’s even a Minecraft version of Westeros, the fictional setting of Game of Thrones.
All of these creations and all of this success and yet it took Mojang five years to introduce a female character on PC and Mac. Minecraft‘s console players have had to wait even longer but now, a female character named “Alex” is coming to the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game.
