“When we were young, we didn’t have a lot of money at all, so I figured if I ever get rich, I won’t be one of those boring rich people who don’t spend money.”

Persson bought a $70 million Beverly Hills home after selling his hit video game in December 2014 and said he spends most of his money on computer equipment and travel.

To date, Markus has a net worth of $1.4 billion.

He still programs new games in his spare time, but he also expressed his feelings of loneliness on Reddit.

Markus is currently single but was previously married to Elin Zetterstrand from 2011-2012.

With her he also had a daughter, Minna Almina Zelda Zetterstrand.
