Steam puts a record of having 26.4 million simultaneous users of the application.
The top games that were being played from the application were Apex Legends, DOTA 2, PUBG, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Tale of Immortal, which is a Chinese RPG game that is available. Vacations for the lunar year will kick off from the coming weekend, and this will lead to a good boost. The numbers of Steam are on the increasing side of the slope for one year for the time being.
In 2020 February, the joint record of the number of people in Steam was only 18.8 million. Steam took a lot of time to reach the 18.5 million mark, but the hype of PUBG made the numbers increase so fast.
On completing 120 million monthly users, Valve mentioned in one of its reviews that Steam was facing a vast growth in 2020 during the COVID19 lockdown. People had to stay at home, and this boomed the playtime in Steam. This increased the selling of games, and people started enjoying their quarantine gaming.
