Today Mojang Studios revealed over 3 million players have played Minecraft Legends since the game launched on April 18th. Minecraft Legends is a unique game from Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive. In Legends a couple of genres have been mixed together to create this hybrid action strategy game.

Mojang Studios also released a press release highlighting these numbers and the upcoming patch. Their press release states:

It’s been less than two weeks since Minecraft Legends launched, and we’re thrilled that our community is finally getting to play it – over 3 million players have already experienced the legend for themselves. Thanks to our community, we’ve also received a lot of great feedback”. We’re beginning to address it in the first game update, which is starting to make its way to all supported platforms right now!

One the biggest changes in this first update is the ability to choose to play on the same team as your friends. Besides this, they’ve also improved the waiting time when matchmaking. Nintendo Switch users will see improvements in input delay and an overall smoother experience. While players who play the game in Japanese, Arabic or Hebrew can expect improvements in localization.


I’m actually rather addicted to this game right now. There is room for improvement, but I feel like they will crank out some great updates.


It is kind of crazy to me. Minecraft is just the gift that keeps on giving for MS and I still think they are just scratching the surface with this franchise. They could do whatever they want and it would sell like hotcakes.


There’s totally room for a Minecraft cart racer that would fit in with the design themes they go for, and I wouldn’t mind seeing some more along the lines of Minecraft Story Mode that Telltale did


The Telltale games were awesome. I was skeptical but it was so well done. I should replay them someday.
