Despite its competitors, Steam’s growth as the industry’s leading PC gaming digital market has remained steady, and Valve has broken records again. The first day reported by SteamDB, Steam hit its highest ever concurrent viewership, with 28 million users logged into the platform simultaneously.
Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Steam has recorded year-over-year growth until reaching its current all-time high of 28,230,853 concurrent players. In January 2021, the maximum number of concurrent users recorded was just over 25 million and this number is only 18.3 million in 2020.
The most played games of the day unsurprisingly include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, PUBG, Apex Legends, and Grand Theft Auto DRAW.
No signs of slowing down and huge upcoming titles like FromSoftware’s Elden RingSteam’s growth looks set to continue, and it may just be a matter of time until the platform breaks another record.
