In case you were wondering about the popularity of Minecraft, the record setting statistics will speak for themselves.
While titles such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite have been putting impressive numbers and grabbing headlines over the past few months, Minecraft has somehow gone under the radar with their stats.
Minecraft head Helen Chiang has revealed that the game had 74 million active users in December which is the most in a month since it was released nearly nine years ago.
“We just recently set a new record in December for monthly active users, so now we’re at 74 million monthly active users—and that’s really a testament to people coming back to the game, whether it’s through the game updates or bringing in new players from across the world,” Chiang said, according to PopSugar.
Minecraft is on every major console, as well as on tablets and phones, giving it a marked advantage, but the numbers are impressive nonetheless.
