Ok, I think I wanna get this straight because this has been an ongoing idea that is completely FALSE. I have done some extended research into this and statistics show that minecraft is not dying. The reasons people think minecraft is dying: A lot of the top youtubers are trying different games these days, this includes some of the pvping community like Danteh whom has just left the game. People leaving. Ok I want to address this one in a bit more detail. Everyone thinks the game is dying based mainly on people leaving, but the people leaving are the people who have been here since the beginning. For example someone who started playing aged 12 when minecraft came out in 2011 would now be 18 in 2017 and most people at this age move on to more important real life situations. Due to lots of people reaching this age they are leaving and lots of people think the game is dying due to this. Well, statistics show that millions of people are still buying the game and playing it. So just because old players are leaving doesn't mean that the game is dead, it just means newer players are joining the game now. I did some research and if you look at this link and go down to June 2016: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Timeline_of_events It shows that minecraft reached 100 million sales. Now according to this article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_video_games Minecraft has reached 122 million sales. That means that Minecraft has gained 22 million sales in 10 months. If you do the Maths, on average in a month, the game gains 2.2 million sales. So if you continue this over the next two months it will have reached over 125 million sales in total. That means that within a year(the year ending in June) Minecraft has increased its total sales by 25% from the original 100 million sales. That means that 1/5 of the sales for minecraft has come from the past year. If you think that Minecraft has been out for 6 years now, that means the average sales per year are around 20.8 million. That means the sales within the past year have already exceeded the yearly average. So to conclude there is no possible way that minecraft could have died apart from the misconceptions stated above. Feel free to tell me if any of this logic is wrong.
