Minecraft spawns one trillion views with a YouTube makeover

The Minecraft community on YouTube consists of over 35,000 established creators across 150 countries and territories


New Delhi: It’s no secret that Minecraft is one of the most successful video games of all time, and now the creative sandbox survival game has crossed yet another milestone. On Wednesday, Mojang and YouTube have combined forces to reveal that Minecraft is the first video game to accumulate over one trillion combined views officially. This impressive accomplishment is being celebrated in a number of ways, with Minecraft boasting a variety of impressive metrics on the video-sharing platform.

During Minecraft Live 2021, Mojang Studios took the opportunity to reveal that Minecraft continues to grow in scale and community over time, with over 141 million monthly active users reported in Aug. 2021. It was also shared that Minecraft was the most-watched topic on YouTube in 2020 with over 201 billion combined views, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the game has now surpassed one trillion views in total near the end of 2021.

The Minecraft community on YouTube consists of over 35,000 established creators across 150 countries and territories, all of which have helped maintain Minecraft as the most-watched video game topic on YouTube for years.
