Minecraft grew more than 20 million players since the last time Microsoft declared a user count back in October 2018. A completely gigantic increment in players, considering the game has been accessible for around 10 years. The number incorporates players in all game consoles, PCs, cell phones, including those who play the game as part of Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft’s Helen Chiang disclosed to Business Insider in an interview that Minecraft currently has 112 million dynamic players consistently.
The virtue of the creative game’s evergreen status as described by Chiang – it’s a brand you “keep coming back to.” You might start up Call of Duty or other games that take the spotlight, however there’s a genuine possibility you’ll come back to building homes and bridges in Minecraft after that.
Different components are likely significant too. Over its sheer omnipresence across all platforms, Minecraft’s blocky designs and basic mechanics make it simple to play on any gadget, regardless of whether it’s a low-cost PC or a cell phone. You can still receive a quality gaming experience on any device.
Microsoft strives to keep the game a household name. Features such as augmented reality of Minecraft Earth, ray-tracing and visual upgrades helps to keep the game relevant. Recently Roblox passed 100 million monthly gamers, and Fortnite may not be that far (it was revealed that 78.3 million users in August 2018). It probably won’t take much for another game to catch on fire.
