With an interface that helps Minecraft players build megastructures, humble homes, and entire recreations of iconic locations from the real world, this incredible game keeps on growing from the time of its first launch in 2011. So, as per Statista, a statistics web portal, Minecraft has a massive user base, something that many would not have expected.

In the year 2019, Minecraft player base was just around 91 million in October. So, there is a growth of 35 million from October 2019 to May 2020 (in just 8 months). There were rumours about the shutting down of the game, however, these stats shut all the rumours down so effectively.
