How many people play Minecraft? 2023 player count
Amazed by Minecraft’s ever-increasing popularity? Here’s how many people play the game actively and monthly in 2023.
Minecraft version 1.20 that’ll introduce Camels and a Cherry Blossom biome is right around the corner and the sandbox game’s popularity hasn’t witnessed even a slight downfall. Here’s how many people play Minecraft actively in 2023.
While some games are well-known for their captivating story, others gain prominence for their characters. However, Minecraft neither has a story nor any characters. It puts you in a massive Overworld and leaves you to survive amidst animals, mobs, and caves.
Having said that, Minecraft is special because it allows players to do literally whatever they want. Even though defeating the Ender Dragon is supposed to be the goal, you can visit the End and still enjoy the game.
Minecraft is still one of the most popular games in the world in 2023, and here’s how many people play it.
Minecraft monthly & active player count in 2023
According to activeplayer.io, more than 176 million people played Minecraft in January 2023. Surprisingly, the monthly player count has increased steadily in the past year, and from the looks of it, it isn’t going to decline anytime soon.
To put things in perspective, Minecraft’s monthly player base in August 2022 was close to 173 million. Within a few months, it gained another 3 million players.
