It didn't take long for the Steam platform to break its own record for the number of users logged in simultaneously: 26.9 million users in April 2021. Steam broke this record by exceeding 27 million users logged in in at the same time, for two consecutive days, with a peak on November 28 at 3 p.m. with 27,385,025 users.

It is important to clarify that this is not the number of people playing games, but simply the number of people simultaneously connected to the service.

“Only” 7.8 million of them played video games.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday as reasons given

Among the most played games, we find heads known for a long time.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is

still in 1st place with a peak of 842,000 players today.

It is followed by

Dota 2

with 669,000 and PUBG with 324,000.

The SteamDB site provides a graph showing the general increase in the number of concurrent users since the creation of Steam.

However, we note that the number of users in the game simultaneously has not changed significantly since 2018.

What prompted users to flock to the platform over the weekend is not entirely certain.

It does, however, coincide with the Thanksgiving period in the United States and Black Friday.

The opening of the Steam sales, which lasted until December 1, may also have given the platform a little boost.

Finally, many large licenses have also been released recently, such as

Halo Infinite

,

Battlefield 2042

and

Forza Horizon 5
