Sauna starting 2022 on the right foot. We’re just two days into the new year and Steam has already broken the peak concurrent player record set just a few months ago.

Last November, Steam set a new record with just over 27 million players all games at once. That comes after the last record from April was set at 26.9 million players. Today, however, Steam is out in 2022 with 27,942,036 peak concurrent players as of 10 a.m. ET, according to SteamDB.
