Microsoft has revealed its latest numbers for Minecraft, and, astonishingly, it’s acquired another 20 million monthly players since previous figures were released just under a year ago.
Last October, official numbers revealed that Minecraft had accumulated 91 monthly active users, which in itself was a massively leap from December 2017, when the game set a new record with more than 74 million players logging in for their fix of cube-based adventure. And Minecraft’s popularity shows no signs of abating, with head of Minecraft Helen Chiang telling Business Insider in a new interview that the game has now amassed 112 million monthly players.
That, of course, accounts for players across all platforms (of which there are many), alongside those playing through Xbox Game Pass – but, even so, it’s another impressive, and slightly head-spinning, number. Furthermore, it sees Minecraft once again stealing the lead over free-to-play rival Roblox, which announced 100 million monthly active users back in August.
