Minecraft is one of the most popular video games of all time, and the YouTube platform is here to prove it again. Minecraft developer Mojang Studios announced today that Minecraft videos have crossed 1 trillion views on YouTube, an impressive achievement for the sandbox game released 10 years ago.

The YouTube website is also celebrating this milestone today with a cool blocky animation appearing on the YouTube logo. And of course, Mojang has also released a special video to celebrate the ever-growing Minecraft community, and you can watch it below.


“All of us at Mojang Studios are in awe of the creativity and ingenuity that the community shows us, each and every day. The builds you create, the tutorials you put together, the commentary that ranges from scathing to slightly less scathing – it inspires us to make Minecraft the best game it can be,” the Minecraft team wrote today.

In case you missed it, Minecraft recently landed in Xbox Game Pass for PC, and there’s a cool Master Chief Mash-Up Pack in the game’s marketplace to celebrate the release of Halo Infinite on Xbox and PC. Microsoft’s gaming division is currently firing on all cylinders, and the Minecraft Dungeons spin-off game was also updated this week to add a first seasonal adventure, Cloudy Climb.
