It also showcases a timeline of creator content which offers a fun look at the scaling of views over the years since the game’s 2011 release.

The article signs off with the following summary statement:

The story of Minecraft on YouTube is one of endless creativity fueled by changes to the game, changes to YouTube, and the ever-evolving interests of both creators and their viewers. Believe it or not, all that energy and output seems to be gaining momentum. As our data shows, it took around eight years for this community to generate 500 billion views, but only another two or so to double that and hit one trillion. What future heights they hit we can only guess at, but as with this milestone, it will be fun to watch it happen.

In other recent Minecraft news, Mojang finally released the second part of the Caves & Cliffs update.
