This was the first time that the platform registered more than 30 million users online simultaneously.
Valve’s gaming platform, Steam, broke the concurrent user record over the past weekend. On Sunday (23), they registered more than 30 million players simultaneously online, thus managing to accumulate the largest number recorded in the history of the company.
This milestone can be considered historic for Steam, as it was the first time that more than 30 million users logged into the platform at the same time.
However, the numbers provided by SteamDB indicate that players were only online at the same time. This does not mean that they were all in some kind of game at the time. That number was about 8.5 million users in last week’s games.
Although Steam broke the record for simultaneous online users, it did not register the highest number of active players for any game.. That’s because in February of this year, the platform registered 9.3 million users, with some titles from its open-source game library.
Anyway, this number served to break the historical record of online users on the platform. The highest rate was recorded in January of this year. At the time, SteamDB highlighted that the game service was open to more than 29 million users.
More than 30 million for the first time
This milestone can be considered historic for Steam, as it was the first time that more than 30 million users logged into the platform at the same time.. According to SteamDB, the exact number was around 30,032,005 active players on Valve’s gaming service.
Among the games likely to contribute the most to the platform reaching this milestone are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and PUBG. The titles appeared with the highest player peaks in the last 24 hours.
The first on the list, created by Valve itself, managed to attract 1.05 million players this week alone. It was the only title to hit over 1 million players this weekend, with Dota 2, also developed by Valve, coming closest with 752k concurrent players.
Among the reasons for Steam’s great success in recent days is the sheer variety of games that the platform accepts. Titles from several publishers, such as Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, and Capcom, are part of the company’s game roster.
