Over 27 million PC gamers were on Steam last weekend

Valve’s Steam platform has a new concurrent users record, with over 27 million users logging in over Thanksgiving weekend. In total, Steam had 273,385,025 users online. Previously, Valve’s peak concurrent player count as 26.9 million, which was achieved in April. 

These record player counts came during Steam’s Autumn sale, and during a major holiday period within North America. On top of that, recent months have seen the launch of many popular new PC games on the platform, such as Naraka: Bladepoint, New World, and MIR4.
