Steam has achieved concurrent player counts of over 23 million, a new record

Thanks to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, more and more people are working from home or isolating themselves, leading to record numbers of people using internet services to media consumption, communication and gaming. 

Now, Valve has reached a new concurrent player record on Steam, reaching past 23.4 million players. Remember that Valve broke past 20 million players two weeks ago, a fact that makes this achievement all the more astounding. Valve favourites like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now reaching peak concurrent player counts of over 1.1 million, while other popular titles like Monster Hunter: World, Destiny 2 and GTA V have also reached higher than usual player counts. 
 
As the Covid-19 crisis increases in severity across Europe and the Americas, it is possible that Valve's player counts will increase further. More and more workplaces are temporarily closing down or adopting a work from home strategy, a move which will no doubt lead to increase internet usage.  

Valve has increased its peak player counts by over 15% in two weeks, and only time will tell if this trend will continue in the coming weeks and months.
