Minecraft Has Over 141 Million Monthly Active Users

Over one billion hours have been logged in Minecraft multiplayer and in 2020 there were over 201 billion hours of Minecraft YouTube videos watched. This was enough to make it the most watched topic on YouTube last year.

There was no update on how many copies Minecraft has sold, however, we do know it sold over 200 million as of May 2020. It is one of the best-selling video games of all time.

I’m just surprised that it hasn’t been ported to the Xbox Series X and PS5.

Yes, but its the Xbox One version of the game rather than a native Series X version.

I had one of those really early accounts that cost next to nothing. One that was supposed to get all updates for free. Years later I tried to locate it, but haven’t been able to find which email I used.

I likely stupidly used a work email, as when I played the game it was just after adventure mode went in, and it was still in very early Alpha. A work email I wouldn’t have had access to for around 10 years now.
