It has happened again. Apparently concurrent user records are only good for about a month each now for Steam. The record that was set on January 2nd of 25.4 million users has been broken. The new record stands at 26,401,443 which was broken yesterday. Steam’s concurrent record was only 18.8 million in February 2020, and it took two years to get there from the previous record of 18.5 million when PUBG was originally taking off. Things change quickly during a pandemic. Jody Macgregor at PC Gamer has more.
