Valve’s Steam Touched 9 Million Concurrent Users Last Sunday
Couple of months ago, Steam announced that they reached 8.4 million concurrent users on January 1st. Meaning that many players were online using this service and playing Dota 2, Counter Strike and other games.
If you think 8.4 million players is impressive? Listen to this, 9.06 million users logged-in to Steam yesterday, Sunday March 15th. That shows the engagement this massive network has. Launched back in 2003, Steam has become the biggest PC platform in the world.
According to some states revealed by Steam, here are the top ten most played games:
- Dota 2
- Counter Strike: Global Offensive
- Team Fortress 2
- Sid Meier’s Civilization V
- PayDay 2
- Cities: Skylines
- Garry’s Mod
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- Football Manager 2015
- Arma III
It won’t be surprising at all if next time we hear the concurrent users going past 10 million. Steam doing well is great news for its fans and the company, however, Steam is generating a monopoly which is never a good thing. As much as I like Steam and the content it offers, I hope there will be an alternative to Steam who’ll keep Valve on its toes.
In related news, Steam is holding a Ubisoft sale featuring titles like Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Far Cry 3, The Crew, Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell Blacklist and plenty of other games and DLC for up to 75% off.
Unfortunately, the sale ends today so you must hurry and grab what you can before the window of opportunity closes.
Head down to the comments and let us know if you contributed to Steam’s concurrent users this past weekend.
