Steam Reaches New Concurrent User Record

9.5 million people logged into Steam at the same time this past weekend.


Valve's PC gaming platform Steam continues to break records.

On Sunday, May 10, a record 9.5 million people were logged into Steam at the same time. That's a new concurrent user number for the platform, and is up from 9 million just a couple months ago.

The news comes by way of Steam's "Stats" page, which reveals that the milestone was achieved in the early afternoon PDT on May 10.

Valve's free-to-play DOTA 2 is currently the most popular game on Steam, based on unique users, followed by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Grand Theft Auto V.
