Steam had 120 million monthly users in 2020

Valve has published a 2020 Year in Review blogpost about Steam, and what everyone’s been doing with it. It begins by acknowledging the unique circumstances we’re all living through, and that these have to be factored into last year’s exceptional figures.

“While Steam was already seeing significant growth in 2020 before COVID-19 lockdowns, video game playtime surged when people started staying home, dramatically increasing the number of customers buying and playing games, and hopefully bringing some joy to counter-balance some of the craziness that was 2020,” wrote Valve.

The year saw new highs for Steam in every area of user activity: a new high for monthly active users (120.4 million), daily active users (62.6 million), peak concurrent users (24.8 million), first-time purchasers (2.6 million per month), and several games purchased (21.4 per cent increase over 2019).
