Steam still explodes its own record, the impressive figures

PC gaming feels more alive than ever. As proof of this, we want this new record broken by Steam on the number of simultaneous players.

Currently and since the Covid crisis, the platform Steam from Valve is a real hit. This is due to several factors. Many users have been able to embark on the PC adventure and in particular Steam to pass the time, that’s a fact. But what is also not negligible is the increasingly important share of the Asian market and particularly the Chinese one. China is a PC giant and Steam currently taking advantage of it.

When Valve breaks its own record Steam

Steam  Chinese.
Chinese version looks like this

In January 2022 we were already talking about a record Steam which was stopped at 28 million simultaneous players. For comparison, this represents more than the population of Cameroon. Well this time the new record is simply 30 million users at the same time more than a country like Venezuela.

For the record, it took 14 years to Steam to reach a peak of 15 million concurrent users in 2017, but only 5 years for the next 15 million. It is simply gargantuan. According to an article from 2019 on the PC game in China there would be approximately 312 million PC players (estimated figure), it is therefore as many users to conquer for Valve to bring on Steam

Moreover, it is also for this reason that we can see many games, even independent ones, offering a Chinese translation when possible. Because it’s always that extra to bring in potential players from this huge market.
