Steam continues to set new concurrent user records



Over the weekend, Steam set a new record for the number of concurrent users, continuing the game's long and steady rise. The fact that PUBG is now free-to-play, as well as the release of a new Yu-Gi-Oh game, is both likely factors in its recent growth. It's only a matter of time before Steam reaches the milestone of 30 million registered users.


According to Steamdb's charts, the number of users on Steam reached 29,201,174 on January 23rd, around 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Steam's own statistics indicate that the peak number of users was 29,198,370. In any case, Steam has surpassed the previous milestone and now has 30 million registered users worldwide.


On the 23rd, the number of users actively participating in a game reached an all-time high of 8.5 million, which was a new record. Previously, 8.1 million people signed up for Covid-19 lockdowns, which was set in March 2020, shortly after the start of the lockdowns.


Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 are currently the two most popular Steam games, according to Steam's statistics. The third-place finish goes to PUBG, which recently became free to play for the first time. However, it is possible that the game currently in fourth place—Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel—which is also free to play and was released just a few days ago, has helped to push player counts to their current heights. Following that are the usual suspects such as Apex Legends, Rust, Grand Theft Auto V, and Football Manager, to name a few examples.


This is likely to be the next game to rocket to the top of the charts, as Elden Ring, which launches on February 24 and recently achieved gold, has already done so.
