Mojang Studios and Microsoft have announced the additional sales numbers for Minecraft. The title has now been sold for more than 200 million times and bought by buyers. In addition, around 126 million monthly active players are officially counted.
According to the official website of Xbox, there are currently 126 monthly active players in Minecraft. In the past few months, the number of active players has increased by 25 percent. At the same time, the number of multiplayer sessions rose by 40 percent.
The game appears to be benefiting from the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, thanks to which more and more people in multiplayer titles are trying to maintain contact with other people as they were not allowed to meet in real life due to lockdown.
The Minecraft: Education Collection, an educational content, which has been available free of charge since March, is extremely popular and has been downloaded more than 50 million times since March 24, 2020.
The official site also mentioned that “We are humbled that there have now been more than 200 million copies of Minecraft sold to date, and 126 million people are now playing Minecraft every month.”
You might be also glad to know that the RTX version of the game in beta is now active, and the hack-and-slash Minecraft Dungeons will also be released soon (on May 26 on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch). So, Minecraft is not a game done and finished yet.
In keeping with the eleventh birthday of “Minecraft”, the Mojang Studios also revealed the name change and the associated logo. At the same time, it was confirmed that the studio is working on several new ideas for new projects. More precise details have not yet been given.
