The new year has just begun and Steam is already breaking records. For the first time in the history of the service, the number of active users has exceeded 25 million.
According to SteamDB , the peak was 25,415,080 gamers. At the same time, just a couple of weeks ago, the service set a record with 24.7 million users. However, you should not be surprised at such activity – the holiday periods often contribute to an increase in the number of users. True, this year the active growth of the audience is also associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
Now the top place in terms of the number of players for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, with over a million users. DOTA 2 has about 700 thousand. In third place is PUBG. Next is Cyberpunk 2077, whose peak was 225 million – three weeks after the release, the game no longer collects the same numbers as in the first time. In fifth place is GTA 5.
