Five Million People Are Currently Playing Games on Steam
The post-New Year hangover has apparently brought with it a milestone for Steam: five million concurrent players. According to Steam stats, the numbers peaked on January 2nd, with current numbers hovering around 4.5 million.
Back in November, nearly 300,000 players were concurrently playing Skyrim on Steam. Steam’s most-played game of the day remains Skyrim, though the number of concurrent players has significantly reduced, down to 90,000. Counter-Strike and, curiously, Football Manager 2012 are roughly tied for second place, with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3′s multiplayer coming in a distant third.
Not a bad time to be Valve, huh?
