Pretty much everyone around the world is at home at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic, so what else is there to do than sit inside and play video games?

This has lead Steam to reach a new concurrent user record for the third week in a row, with 24,535,923 users on Steam at the same time on 4 April at around 15:00 UTC, according to SteamDB

However, this is only the number of users logged into Steam; the in-game concurrent player count reached 8,171,592 at the same time, which is another record.

The records just keep coming – Steam reached 20 million concurrent users on 15 March, 22 million on 21 March, and 23 million a week after that.

Could we be getting up to 30 million soon? Probably, since coronavirus is showing no signs of slowing down just yet. So stay home and play through your unplayed Steam games!
