Steam Sets A Record With 27 Million People Playing Simultaneously: Here Are The Most Played Games

Steam has set a new instant player count record, as we’re used to with the Autumn Sale every year. The platform hosted more than 27 million players around 16:00 yesterday.
Steam, today’s largest game and player platform, hosts millions of players every minute. However, the number of instant players on Steam can also skyrocket, especially during discount periods. Players who add brand new games to their library are enjoying their new games.

As the popularity of video games continues to increase in the world, Steam breaks new records in the number of instant players every year. This time, the platform managed to break its new record during the Autumn Sale period, which is currently ongoing and will end on December 1st. Steam hosted 27 million 384 thousand 959 players simultaneously.

A new record has been set on Steam:

According to all information on the Steam Database, the platform hosted more than 27 million players on November 28 at 16.00. The increase in the number of players in the same hour every day was also an indication of when the players were most active. On the other hand, when we look at the current graph, we can say that it is not impossible for Steam to break a new record today.


Steam broke the previous instant player count record on April 1, 2021. On this date, a total of 26 million 922 thousand 926 players were found simultaneously on the platform. Finally, according to the information on SteamDB, as of the moment of writing this article, 21 million 375 thousand 859 players are online on the platform.
