Steam has just set a new record for its concurrent players. According to SteamData, there were over 30 million concurrent players on October 23rd.
Steam broke its previous record, hitting 29 million concurrent players, in January 2022. This means that it took Valve around eight months in order to hit Steam’s 30 million goal.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. 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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
