That’s up from 91 million monthly active users (MAU) reported in October 2018.
“What we find is that it’s a game that players keep coming back to,” Minecraft studio head Helen Chiang said. “It may not always be the one that’s in the forefront, because there are a lot of great games that continue to come out, but it’s one that they love to return to.”
Microsoft acquired Minecraft studio Mojang and the game’s intellectual property rights for $2.5 billion in 2014.
The title has gone on to become one of the most successful games in history. It celebrated its tenth anniversary in May, when Microsoft said Minecraft sales had exceeded 176 million units.
To coincide with the 30th anniversary of Tetris in June 2014, it was widely reported that with 170 million copies sold, the puzzle game was the best-selling game of all time.
Rather than developing a full-blown Minecraft sequel, Microsoft has said its primary concern is keeping the existing community happy with updates to the original game, while expanding the franchise with spin-offs such as Minecraft Earth, which is currently in closed beta.
