DOTA 2 is still the most-played game
In a new high for the marketplace that just can’t be stopped, Steam has hit 14 million concurrent users, an all-time high. Yes, that’s 14 million people logged in at one time, roughly the amount of US viewers the TV show Dancing With the Stars gets in a single night.
Of course DOTA 2 is still the top played game, followed by CS, Grand Theft Auto V, and ARK: Survival Evolved. There’s a massive dropoff between the first two and the rest, so it’s basically anyone’s race to win outside of Valve’s flagship titles.
Given how big Steam is I always expect them to hit any given milestone that’s set, but this is still really impressive for something that had such a rocky start and still employs some form of DRM on its users.
