On Thanksgiving weekend 2021, Steam broke a new record when it hit an all-time high of 27,384,959 concurrent players playing games on its service.

SteamDB revealed that this new simultaneous player record was set on Sunday the 28th.

Another important factor in Steam reaching this new all-time peak is that the autumn sale has started, and it will be giving fans huge discounts on a ton of different games through December 1st.

Steam’s simultaneous player record has been rising steadily for some time, and the new milestone of 27 million is 10 million more than the 17,155,417 in November 2019.

Steam’s awesome 2021 is obviously based on the games that live in its store, and they’ve been part of the platform’s success this year as well. For example, Team Fortress 2 broke its own Steam record in 2021 after 14 years, and Final Fantasy 14 did the same without releasing anything new. Of course, there are many factors responsible for these achievements beyond being a member of Steam, but it’s still worth applauding.
