Steam sets new concurrent player record in less than a month
On January 9, Steam set a new record with 28 million concurrent players. And, in less than a month, Valve’s service was able to break that record and set a new one.
Earlier today, Steam had 29,201,174 players online at the same time. As such, we can safely assume that Valve’s service will surpass the 30 million target in 2022.
Looking at the most played games, we can see Counter-Strike: Global Offensive dominating the leaderboard. CS:GO is followed by DOTA 2, PUBG Battlegrounds and Yu-Gi Oh! Master Duel. Yes, you read that right. Yu Gi Oh! Master Duel managed to beat APEX Legends and Grand Theft Auto 5. APEX Legends is in fifth place and GTA5 is in sixth place. And then, in the last four places of the Top10 we find Rust, Monster Hunter Rise, NARAKA: Bladepoint and ARK: Survival Evolved.
