Steam has hit a new concurrent player figure record with 18.5m people on the platform at one time late last week.
Valve revealed at Casual Connects in August last year that its peak concurrent user figure was 14m. That grew to 17.5m in November during the Autumn Sale.
As always, it would seem that Playerunknown's Battelgrounds is partly to blame for this. Checking the data for battle royale game, more than three million people were playing that title when Steam hit its new peak.
As an aside, this also shows that just under half of people in a game on Saturday January 6th were playing Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.
The 1.0 release of the game saw Steam's total bandwidth increase by four times.
