Minecraft active player count worldwide 2016-2020

How many people play Minecraft?

Since its release in 2011, Minecraft has amassed 126 million active players worldwide. The popular sandbox game, which is developed by Swedish game publisher, Mojang, allows players to build 3D worlds with different types of blocks and then explore and craft items within their new world.
Minecraft sells millions of copies

Minecraft is available on several computer operating systems and was more recently released for consoles. Due to the freedom that is afforded players and the infinite number of ways the game can develop, it is unsurprising that Minecraft has been a commercial success. The game reached one million sales less than a month into its beta phase in 2011 and, as of May 2020, it has sold a cumulative 200 million copies worldwide.

Minecraft on mobile

A mobile version of Minecraft first became available in 2011 and, by 2016, full versions of the mobile game were available across most mobile operating systems. As with many mobile games, Minecraft players have the option to buy downloadable content to enhance their gaming experience. In 2018, the game generated 110 million U.S. dollars in global revenue, representing a seven percent increase over the previous year.
