Minecraft still has more monthly players than Fortnite

Fortnite has nearly 80 million players logging in to be the last man standing every month, which is a phenomenal number of people playing a single game. You’d imagine, with those numbers, that it’d be the biggest game in the world. It’s not though; Minecraft is still unfathomably popular, drawing in over 90 million active players every month. With over 150 million copies sold over the years, it’s the second best-selling game ever, coming in just after Tetris.

Where that at? Because they sure aren’t on Twitch or YouTube. Did it just become less popular far as streaming goes?

One would think so. It's 4 years old after all.

I'm not surprised Minecraft has more players. It's a juggernaut.

OMGitzThatGuy42d ago

Teens aren't playing Minecraft, children are the minority on Twitch, and most streamers who aren't chasing broke kids won't play it. You have to draw in viewers with money, and kids are not that.

Not everyone streams or uploads to YouTube. Big surprise I know.

Minecraft is looking more and more like a good investment on MS part.

lxeasy43d ago

It was definitely a smart investment. And the fact that MS us keeping it on multiple platforms is wise. They released it for the switch. I wouldn't be surprised if it makes it's way to next gen consoles as well.

Lego ripoff that acts as if it invented the idea of stacking blocks on top of each other. Terrible art style too. But it's not Fortnite, literal garbage.

ImGumbyDammit42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

@PhatomS42 I didn't know Legos was originally a computer product? I do know there was this thing called blocks that has existed for at least 100 years or more before a Lego came around. Heck Lincoln Logs and Errector sets (1912) long predated that ripoff called Legos (1930's). All kidding aside Legos is actually a 100% ripoff of an actual product called Kidcraft blocks (an exact copy of not a sort of looks like but, 100% the same thing - every little detail). Kidcraft was created 10 yeas before Legos.

Who claimed that it invented “stacking block”?

lxeasy42d ago

Yeah i'm just gonna sit back and let everyone else tear you apart lmaol
