Even with the massive growth that Minecraft is experiencing Chiang has said that their goal is to keep bringing more content to players which will both apply to older players as well as the new.

Here is what Chiang had to say: "We just recently set a new record in December for monthly active users, so now we're at 74 million monthly active users - and that's really a testament to people coming back to the game, whether it's through the game updates or bringing in new players from across the world, that's really our goal, to keep building the community that we have."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
