A New High: Steam Has Logged Over 10 million Users Online at One Time

By Nick | January 8, 2023

Steam recently recorded 10 million active users on January 7, 2023, marking the first time this platform achieved such a number.

This is considered a monumental accomplishment for the PC market which has experienced opposition in its popularity over recent years due in large part by the introduction of the PS5 and XBOX Series consoles.

Earlier this week, however, Steam logged 5.8 million concurrent users, as players worldwide began playing the games they had acquired during the recently held Steam Winter Sale.

The Steam platform has seen an increase in its profile due to the addition of a wide range of free-to-play games such as Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty: Warzone 2, PUBG: Battlegrounds and Apex Legends.

Additionally, there have been several successful paid games including Among Us, Grand Theft Auto, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 that have led to an increase in the platform's popularity.

SteamDB reports that the total concurrent users on Steam reached a record high of 10,016,459 on January 7, marking the first time that more than 10 million users were recorded in one 24-hour period.

Furthermore, the Steam platform has added several useful features such as SteamWorks, the Steam Store, Steam Workshop, and Steam Cloud. SteamWorks enables a developer to easily modify, build, package and launch games on the platform.

The Steam store provides a huge variety of games to choose from, and it is updated regularly, making it easier for customers to find new and interesting games with the Steam Workshop allowing players to create and share content with the rest of the community.
