To help celebrate the milestone, Minecraft fans are welcome to visit this reddit thread and submit questions, which will be answered during a live question and answer session later this week.

Also, more than one million desktop gamers played Minecraft simultaneously, Mojang noted, with the milestone reached at a non-peak time.
