Steam, the highly popular and beloved digital distribution platform from Valve, witnessed more than 17 million concurrent users on the weekend.
2017 has been a great year for PC gaming thanks to some excellent exclusive games and ports of console titles, but it seems like the best had yet to come regarding Steam, as a new all-time highest users peak has been reached recently.
Steam Witnesses Record-Breaking 17 Million Concurrent Users
Of course, what helped draw many of those users were the magnificent Black Friday deals. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds with its ever-growing number of players also raised its own bar after everyone must've decided that they needed to buy the game for the holidays. Almost 3 million of them participated in PUBG.
Despite the number of players, there were only 6.9 million people actually in-game. That said, we wouldn't be surprised for Valve to end up reporting 18 million concurrent players next month. Therefore, it's very likely the numbers will die down after this week.
