Steam Sets New Concurrent User Record
More than 12.3 million people logged into Steam today.
Steam has set a new concurrent user record.
Today, January 3, more than 12.3 million people logged into the service at the same time. That represents a new all-time high, surpassing 10.7 million in October. The uptick might be at least partially attributable to the Christmas-New Year week, when many students are out of school and adults off work.
