New Steam record!
Valve's games platform breaks user record for forth month.
PC games platform Steam amassed more than nine million concurrent players on Sunday.
The previous record was set very recently, in February, when the platform amassed 8.9 million concurrent users. In January, the previous record was set at 8.4 million. The continually rising milestone shows that Steam's numbers are not spiking momentarily, but gradually growing.
In September, Valve announced that the number of active Steam users had broken past the 100 million mark, and in March, said that number was now above 125 million.
Driving the numbers are two of Steam's evergreen titles, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Over the weekend, Dota 2 peaked at about 900,000 concurrent users. Global Offensive, meanwhile, was just shy of 600,000.
