Minecraft is arguably one of the most popular games ever and despite being released over a decade ago, it has a massive player base. Read this article to know how many people play Minecraft in 2022.
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 never visit the End and still enjoy the game.
Minecraft is still one of the most popular games in the world in 2022, and here’s how many people play it.
