Steam reaches new all-time peak of 26 million concurrent users

Steam has managed to break the concurrent user record back in 2020. This achievement’s contribution can be easily granted to the Pandemic, which caused multiple lockdowns across the globe. Well, today’s reach is also somewhat a contribution of the Covid-19, which has reapplied those lockdowns in multiple countries. Self-isolation means the world to some people, and the only way to sustain a decent level of entertainment while being isolated from the real world is by playing video games.

Digital resellers such as Steam notice a hike, either in players, purchases, or in general online usage. According to SteamDB, the new all-time peak for concurrent users is 26,401,443 million. Valve has to be satisfied with the numbers, even if those are caused by problematic occurrences such as the Covid-19.

Steam reaches new all-time peak of 26 million concurrent users.

These numbers do not solidify the logic, and not every one of the 26 million users has had to or has been playing a video game simultaneously. Some of them might have just been logged in without playing a video game. The gain in users in the monthly breakdown is also in an ascending phase, which means the numbers are prone to a further rise.

Valve has done exceptional work in acquiring some of the greatest video game titles on their platform. The last 7 months are noticing a constant influx of active users, which means the number of 26 million concurrent users might grow even further.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
