How Many People Play Minecraft?

​According to a report from Business Insider in Oct. 2018, Microsoft announced over 91 million players makes up the monthly player count. Microsoft purchased Mojang, the creator of Minecraft in 2014. 


One of the drawing aspects to the large player count is the amount of platforms Minecraft is available on. Minecraft is playable on Xbox and PlayStation platforms, PC, Android/iOS and the Nintendo Switch. It's reminiscent of why Fortnite is so popular as well. 


Minecraft doesn't have the same cross-platform capabilities that Fortnite has, but it still remains one of the most popular games in the world currently.
