Steam has shattered last year's concurrent player record by reaching as many as 18.5 million simultaneously logged in users this past Saturday.
While a chunk of that concurrent jump is no doubt owed to the ongoing success of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Steam, the year-over-year growth in itself goes to show that Steam is still a leading platform in the PC world.
The third-party tracker Steam Database clocked a grand total of 18,522,222 players on Saturday, January 6 with 7,143,070 of those players logged into a game at that same moment.
During the now all-time peak, 3.1 million players were logged into PlayerUnknonwn’s Battlegrounds, a number just slightly higher than the Steam-wide peak concurrent players record set by Battlegrounds last month.
