The situation related to the pandemic that made so many people have to stay at home some time ago is unfortunate, but on the other hand, it is also profitable for several businesses including video games. It’s not difficult to see the statistics of various platforms going up along with the more time gamers have to stay at home, which then ends with the previous milestone records being subdued. One who enjoys this? Of course, Steam from Valve, which records the number of registered and active users at the same time, continues to skyrocket. But who would have thought that this record could still be surpassed in a calmer situation.
Steam has just hit a record that is no less impressive. They just recorded the number of concurrent active users of up to 30 million users! This figure of course proves Steam’s popularity, which instead of subsides with age, is actually increasing. In comparison, Steam only recorded around 10 million concurrent users in 2015, or about 12 years after it was first available on the market. But remember, this number is calculated from just Steam gamers who are online without having to actively play certain games in it.
Last weekend, Steam managed to touch 30 million active concurrent users.
This figure is also followed by the high number of active players in several competitive games such as CSGO and Valve’s DOTA 2, followed by third party games such as PUBG as well. The total players who are actively playing from 30 million users are allegedly around at least 8 million users. Will Steam be able to break this record again in the future? Let’s just wait.
