There were many who wanted to play something on Steam or had their account running, so many that it became a new user record.
According to information from Steamdb so it has now emerged that on Sunday 2 January, which was also the last day for many before returning to work, many wanted to play.
This Sunday, a total of 27,942,036 users were logged in at the same time, they were very close to 28 million, but perhaps also a sign that Valve will soon be there. But all these almost 28 million did not play at the same time, instead it was “only” 8,219,950 of the users who actually played something on their Steam account.
It will be interesting to see how these numbers increase in 2022 and if you succeed with over 9 million who actually play at the same time as well.
