Latest numbers for Steam are going to blow you away. No one could imagine that steam would get this big around 10 years ago, except the man on the picture below. Gabe Newell.
He managed to create a platform that will never go away. It’s pure gold for the consumers and developers around the world.
What does that mean you ask?
- 14 Million peak concurrent users (peak in 2015 was 8.4M)
- 33 Million daily active players
- 67 Million monthly active players
- 26 Million new purchasers since January 2016 (nearly 1.5M per month!)
If these numbers aren’t enough for you… be sure to check their competition. GOG, Origin, Uplay, Battle.net. They aren’t anywhere near that… and most offer their own games only.
