Steam has broken its own concurrent user record once again

28,230,853 were simultaneously online earlier today.

Valve has once again hit an all-new concurrent user peak record – this time, topping 28 million users.

It’s the latest in a long-line of record-breaking stats for Valve, which first saw the number of concurrent users climb at the start of the pandemic in 2020. The all-time peak now sits at 28,230,853 concurrent players.

“Concurrent users saw strong growth during 2020, due to the impact of COVID-19, but it’s clear that growth also continued to persist in 2021,” explains industry analyst, Daniel Ahmad, before pointing out that it’s the post-Christmas period that seemingly proves particularly popular for Steam.

“Peaks reached each Jan: Jan 2019 17.6m, Jan 2020 18.3m, Jan 2021 25.4m, and Jan 2022 28.2m.”
