Mojang's financial filings revealed that the world-creation sim has raked in $80 million (£50m) since its launch in October 2010.
A further $1 million (£640,000) was made through merchandising, with clothing such as t-shirts and socks proving the most popular items, The Financial Times reports.
Mojang chief executive Carl Manneh revealed that the firm has been approached by Hollywood studios about adapting Minecraft for television.
"We've been approached by a number of high-profile Hollywood producers and asked to do TV shows," he said. "We may do that. It's hard when you don't have any experience and someone comes to throw these ideas around.
"We have so much to focus on with just the game development and growing the business. But if the right idea comes along and the right people that we'd want to work with, we'd say, 'why not?'"
Minecraft is released for Xbox 360 on May 9.
