San Francisco, Sep 15 (IANS) The popularity of video game Minecraft has been growing, with Microsoft announcing that over 112 million people play it a month. It's 20 million increase over the figures reported in October 2018.
Minecraft was acquired by tech giant Microsoft in 2014 for $2.5 billion.
Given that the game is available on almost all platform, it's no surprise that number of players keeps growing, Windows Central reported on Saturday.
Often touted as virtual LEGO, the game is about fitting pieces together to create something amazing. The game is essentially a blank canvas and provides endless building blocks.
But post-launch support and the ability of users to create content, even campaigns, are considered reasons behind its success. Hopefully, the title will continue to flourish and reach even greater heights, the report said.
