For over 10 years, the wildly popular game “ Minecraft” has been a cultural juggernaut. Despite other major games sweeping up millions of players, like “ Fortnite” and “ Roblox,” “Minecraft” continues to quietly dominate.
As of this week, the game now has over 112 million players every month.
That represents a jump of over over 20 million players since the last time Microsoft announced as much, back in October 2018— an absolutely massive increase in players, considering the game has been available for over 10 years. The number includes players across game consoles, computers, mobile devices, and the education-focused version of the game.
Notably, “Minecraft” isn’t free on the many platforms it’s available on.
The tens of millions of new players “Minecraft” added in the last year all bought the game in one form or another, whether it was a direct purchase of a physical copy in a store or as part of Microsoft’s popular Game Pass subscription service or a digital purchase.
