    Steam has continued to grow and over the weekend set a new record with a peak of 18.5 million concurrent users. That is an increase of 4.5 million from the 14 million concurrent users in January 2017.

    Concurrent users means the number of people currently logged into Steam and not the number of people playing games on Steam. 

     Here is a list of peak concurrent users going back to 2012:

    • January 2012: 5 million
    • January 2013: 6.6 million
    • December 2013: 7 million
    • June 2014: 8 million

    • June 2015: 10 million
    • November 2015: 13.4 million
