    Fortnite isn't the most popular game, however that doesn't mean it’s hurting other gaming phenomena. Microsoft's Helen Chiang told Business Insider in an interview that Minecraft currently has 112 million active users every month, an increase of 20 million compared to figures in October 2018. THE BLOG This includes players across all platforms, including those who play the game as part of an Xbox Game Pass, but that's still no small achievement for a game that has been around in some form for more than a decade.

    Chiang said it was partly an advantage of the imaginative game's enduring popularity -- it's a title that players "keep returning to." You might fire up Fortnite or other games that take the spotlight, but there's a real possibility that you'll be back to building homes and tunnels in Minecraft after that.

    Other factors could also be important. In addition to its popularity across platforms, Minecraft's blocky graphics and simple mechanics allow it to be played on devices with modest hardware such as a budget PC or a smartphone. You can invest a small amount on hardware , and still enjoy a great experience.

    Microsoft's current challenge is to keep the game relevant. The augmented reality of Minecraft Earth helps, as does ray-tracing , and other attempts to enhance the look. It's unclear if that's enough, however. Roblox recently reached 100 million monthly users and Fortnite may be close (it was reported to have 78.3million users in August 2018). It might not take much for other games to capture the cultural zeitgeist.
