The Coronavirus is currently in full control of the world, with more and more companies sending people home offices or potentially integrating with home insulation. But providers like Netflix and Steam also benefit.
This can be explained by the fact that because of the COVID-19 pandemic, people spend more time at home
According to the source, on Sunday morning more than 20.3 million concurrent users were registered on Steam. This is a new service record. There were 6.2 million people in any game at that moment.
The Valve gaming platform is one of the profiteers of the current coronavirus crisis. Because most people’s lives are transformed into four walls and they have to deal with it somehow. Of course, there are many possibilities: reading, watching television and playing.
The source explains the record for the fact that many people now remain at home because of the coronavirus.
The fact that many users enter the service but don’t play is partly due to the fact that they use other platform features, but in most cases, this is due to the fact that Steam is logged in by default at system startup.
There are more than 20 million steam users at the same time
Not surprisingly, there are more people on steam now than usual. Since the Valve platform is currently experiencing consumer rush like never before. As PC Gamer reports, Steam reached a new record of users who were online at the same time yesterday. According to the Steam Database, more than 20 million users logged in at about the same time yesterday afternoon, of which 6.2 million were actually in a game.
Login users are a new record, but not in relation to the players. The record still holds 7.2 million players, compiled on New Year’s Day 2018, the biggest reason for this being the early (and now declining) player on the battlefield of the unknown.
The five most popular games Playing on Steam
Most currently play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, followed by Dota 2 and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds. The top 5 on Steam are completed by Grand Theft Auto 5 and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
The recent increase in the number of users added to the steam is also significantly higher than that isolated by the Coronavirus, as there was no significant start to a game that pushed the number forward.
