About This Statistic

The timeline shows the number of concurrent Steam users from November 2012 to September 2017. The latest figures from September 2017 show that Steam had 15 million simultaneous users at peak time. In June 2014, during Steam Summer Sale Encore Day, eight million people used the software distribution platform at the same time. One year later the platform reached more than 10 million users. Steam reached record-high numbers in January 2017 with 14.21 peak concurrent players. As with the previous top score, this time the record was also a result of the Steam's sale period that ended that same week when the record was broken. All in all, according to 2016 usage statistics, the most played game on Steam based on peak concurrent players that year was DOTA 2.
