A record breaking 26.4 million people used the platform this weekend.

It appears that Steam is continuing to increase in popularity, as it has actually broken its record for concurrent players for the second time in 2021. The platform taped 26.4 million users over the weekend which is an additional one million on top of the previous record. According to PC Player, the most popular games played during this period were Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Peak Legends.

These figures are quite excellent undoubtedly however it deserves noting that players don’t need to be in-game to be signed up as a concurrent user. If you have the platform open and you’re searching the Achievements or Community Hub for your preferred video game then you will still be signed up. The real number of players in-game during this duration was 7.3 million, which of course is much lower than the general total.
