Steam Breaks Its Previous Record With Over 8 Million Users Online Simultaneously

By   /   Dec 31, 2014

Valve is switching gears to head into the new year. Its online Steam platform managed to break its previous record yesterday by registering over eight million users who were online simultaneously.

The staggering numbers dictate not only the popularity of Steam, but also how PC gaming is evolving with each year. According to the statistics posted on Steam’s website, 8,156,455 Steam users were online yesterday.

The game with the highest number of players was Dota 2, with over 800,000. That was followed by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with 273,934 players, Team Fortress 2 with 71,807, Football Manager 2015 with 62,448, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with 45,461 and Sid Meier’s Civilization V with 38,646 players.

Valve would be pretty happy to see the top two slots being filled by their own games. Whereas someone should inform Bethesda how Skyrim is still popular and that we need another Elder Scrolls title.
