Steam Hits New Heights Breaks Concurrent User Record Once Again

Steam Hits New Heights Breaks Concurrent User Record Once Again

Spring Sale Surge?

Valve’s Steam platform seems to be singing a familiar tune lately, with concurrent user numbers soaring higher and higher. According to reports from VGC, this past Sunday saw a staggering 36.3 million players logged in simultaneously—a new record for Steam, as tracked by SteamDB.

This latest milestone marks yet another instance in 2024 where Steam has shattered its previous concurrent user record. Just last week, the platform boasted approximately 35 million concurrent players, while back in January, it hit 33.6 million users. It appears that when Valve poses the question, “Can you take me higher?” the resounding answer from consumers is a definitive yes.

Counter-Strike 2

As of now, Counter-Strike 2 leads the pack with 1.3 million concurrent players. Notably, earlier this year, Palworld achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing 2 million concurrent players on Steam, becoming only the second game ever to achieve this milestone—a feat that has eluded even Counter-Strike 2 (and Global Offensive).

The recent surge in user numbers on the Valve storefront could potentially be attributed to the ongoing Steam Spring Sale, which kicked off over the weekend. With thousands of discounted titles available until March 21, gamers have ample opportunities to score some great deals. GameSpot has also curated a selection of the best Spring Sale offers for titles compatible with the Steam Deck.
