Mojang Studios today announced that their passion project dungeon crawler ‘Minecraft Dungeons’ has surpassed 25 million players worldwide. Along with sharing a heartfelt thanks, the company has also prepped a video celebrating the milestone.
Although the game’s supported ended with version 1.17 nearly a year ago, Mojang Studios intends to continue bringing new and unique Minecraft experiences.
MINECRAFT DUNGEONS: 25 MILLION PLAYERS AND COUNTING
A heartfelt ‘Thank you!’!
Time flies when you’re having fun. Before you know it, your game is all grown up and walking around on their own little legs. Today, on the day of Minecraft Dungeons announcement five years ago, we’re proud to share that our little game has hit a milestone and passed 25 million unique players!
Not only is that a number even the brightest people at Mojang Studios can’t count to – it’s also very humbling to see that so many heroes have picked up the mantle to rid the Overworld of the influence of the Orb of Dominance. This journey has been nothing short of amazing, and we invite you to look back at it together with us.
Minecraft Dungeons began as a passion project, inspired by our love of classic dungeon crawler games and reimagined as a completely new Minecraft experience. But it was the love of our players that made it grow and thrive, allowing us to continue the adventure and venture further into the Nether, the End, and eventually the mysterious Tower. It exceeded our wildest dreams, and it makes us both proud and grateful for having had the pleasure of building a game together with a community like this one.
However, every journey has an end. As 1.17 was Minecraft Dungeons’ final update, our team has now moved on to new projects that continue to explore experiences in the Minecraft universe. This means that there are no new features or content updates planned for the game. We do intend to continue bringing new experiences to the Minecraft universe and give our team the freedom to keep exploring the types of games they’re passionate about – just as they did with Dungeons!
Don’t think for a second this means your adventures are done! There are still plenty of adventures to be had together with your friends; dungeons to spelunk, ancient hunts to conquer, and toppling a Tower whose layout will continue to rotate. And while the story of Dungeons might have reached its conclusion, our community continues to build their own stories. We are happy that so many new players discover and enjoy the game on a growing range of platforms, and ultimately become part of the Dungeons family of heroes.
You’re all wonderful. Thank you for all your support and see you in the dungeons!Minecraft Dungeons Milestone Blog Post
