Minecraft Legends surpasses 3 million players in two weeks

Minecraft is the best-selling game of all time, having shifted over 238 million copies across the game’s many platforms. While we are unlikely to ever see a Minecraft 2, the team at Mojang have been keeping the Minecraft name going with a number of spin-offs crossing many different genres. The most recent release – Minecraft Legends – has already managed to surpass 3 million players in just under two weeks.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Minecraft Legends account revealed that “#MinecraftLegends just launched and over 3 million players have already hopped in! We’re pleased to announce our first game update, which is starting to make its way to supported platforms right now!”

In going to their blog, we can see the full list of changes and improvements coming with this first hotfix, namely matchmaking improvements, performance and stability fixes and localisation changes – with more promised to be on the way in future.

For the uninitiated, Minecraft Legends is a real-time action strategy game which sees you “explore a gentle land of rich resources and lush biomes on the brink of destruction. The ravaging piglins have arrived, and it’s up to you to inspire your allies and lead them in strategic battles to save the Overworld!”

Being a first-party Xbox release, Minecraft Legends did launch day-one on Xbox Game Pass, and so it is worth noting that the 3 million players figure does not equate to the number of copies sold. Still, seeing over 3 million people give the game a go in less than two weeks is impressive nonetheless. It will be interesting to see how the title evolves over time – both in terms of the content offered as well as the player base.
