Valve’s gaming platform Steam set a new record over the weekend. There were more than ten million active concurrent users in total. It is the first time that this number of ten million has been broken.

These data are taken from the SteamDB website. According to that data, there was already a peak of 10,082,055 simultaneous active users last Saturday afternoon. These are users who were actually actively engaged in a gaming session. The total number of concurrent users, including those who had not started any active sessions and were just logged in, then stood at 32,186,301 players. A day later, on Sunday afternoon, that number rose further to a peak of 10,284,568 active concurrent users and a total of 33,078,963 concurrent users. These are the new record numbers for now, but it happens regularly that new records are set on Steam.

The latter has to do with the fact that the number of users on Steam continues to rise steadily and has been the case for quite some time. Steam peaked at 10 million concurrent users for the first time in 2015. That was twelve years after Steam saw the light of day. The 20 million concurrent Steam user mark was broken in March 2020, at the time of the start of the pandemic. Due to the lockdowns, the number of simultaneous Steam users grew quite fast. In January 2021, Steam passed the 25 million concurrent user mark and broke the 30 million mark in October last year.

The games that were played the most over the past weekend are mainly the usual titles that consistently top the list: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2. In third place is Goose Goose Duck, a clone of the game Among Us, followed by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Apex Legends, Lost Ark, GTA V, Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 combined, Rust and Wallpaper Engine.
