Steam Sets New Record for Concurrent Users – Over 14 Million Steam Users Online Simultaneously

Today, Steam set a new record for concurrent users. As we can see, there were 14,370,167 Steam users online a couple of hours ago. And to be honest, it took Steam a while to reach that milestone. After all, back in November 2015, we reported Steam reaching 13 million Steam users online simultaneously.

In other words, it took Steam more than a year to hit 14 million Steam users being online at the same time, something that did not happen even during Steam’s Winter Sale 2016 event.

According to Steam’s graphs, DOTA 2 was the most played game today as it peaked at 901,129 gamers. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive comes second, followed by Grand Theft Auto V and Football Manager 2017. ARK: Survival Evolved is in fifth place, followed by Team Fortress 2, Rocket League, RUST, Garry’s Mod and Civilization V.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
