Steam has 67 million monthly active users

Valve has revealed just how many people use Steam.

Business development rep Tom Giardino announced at Casual Connects in Seattle – as reported by GeekWire – that Steam has 67m monthly active players as well as 33m daily active players.

That’s not all, either. Giardino announced that its peak concurrent user figure has grown to 14m, a sizeable increase from 2015’s 8.4m figure. Furthermore, the retail platform has attracted 27m new users since the start of 2016, which the company points out is an average of 1.5m each month.

At the end of 2015, Valve announced that Steam has 125m registered accounts in total. Taking into consideration this growth data, this figure should stand in the region of 150m by now.

Giardino didn’t stop there, either. In one slide he broke down how much revenue different regions generated in 2017 to date. North America took the biggest slice, 34 per cent of all revenue, while Western Europe was close behind with a 29 per cent share.

Asia was responsible for 17 per cent, ahead of Russia’s five per cent.

Giardino said that this international growth is related to Valve’s localisation efforts for both stores and payment methods.
