Steam breaks concurrent users record yet again

Steam concurrent user record

Steam had a good weekend. The concurrent user record that was set only in January, which saw 8.4 million using the platform at the same time, has already been smashed. On Sunday afternoon, Steam peaked at a massive 9.06 million concurrent users.

The ten most popular games at the time is a list mostly filled with stalwarts like Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, but Colossal Order’s new city-builder, Cities: Skylines, also made it onto the list.

Here’s what most people have been playing:

  • Dota 2
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Civilization V
  • Payday 2
  • Cities: Skylines
  • Garry’s Mod
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Football Manager 2015
  • Arma 3

I wonder how long it will take for this one to be broken? Maybe I’ll be writing another one of these in May.
