Back in March this year, it was news that Valve Corporation’s Steam has reached new heights with about nine million concurrent users playing games on the service at the same time.
Now, it appears that they have gone way ahead of that. According to the latest figures that came out of the service yesterday, a new world record of most concurrent users has been made.
It was recorded by Valve Corporation that exactly 11,625,415 gamers were playing a game on Steam at the same time. You read that right, eleven million six hundred twenty five thousand four hundred and fifteen!
Compare this with the figures from June last year, the record was at eight million players – see how far they have come.
If you check out the image below, you will be able to see the top games that made that possible according to the “top games by current player count” table on the Steam & Game Stats page.
The most played game at that time was Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with 670,081 players with DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, ARK: Survival Evolved, Sid Meier’s Civilization V, GTA V, Garry’s Mod, Football Manager 2015, PAYDAY 2 and Skyrim below in that order.
These figures are clear evidence that Steam is here to stay and probably get even bigger.
