Valve’s game launch­er, Steam, has set anoth­er new con­cur­rent play­er record. The plat­form final­ly passed 28 mil­lion con­cur­rent users on Jan­u­ary 9th. The num­bers were dis­played on Steam’s pub­lic sta­t­ics page. It shows the cur­rent record is 28,230,661.

Ana­lyst Daniel Ahmad stat­ed that Steam saw “strong growth” for con­cur­rent play­ers in 2020 due to the pan­dem­ic, and that growth has only steadi­ly increased since then. Steam reached 27.9 mil­lion con­cur­rent users right at the start of Jan­u­ary, so it did­n’t take long for the scale to tip over that 28 mil­lion officially. 

The most pop­u­lar games on the plat­form dur­ing this time includ­ed Valve’s own Counter-Strike: Glob­al Offen­sive. This game typ­i­cal­ly tops the charts, and Jan­u­ary 9th was not excep­tion, peak­ing with 881,051 play­ers. Dota 2 (anoth­er Valve title) fol­lowed right behind, with 748,270 peak play­ers.
