Sitting behind Counterstrike were DOTA 2 (766,096), Goose Goose Duck (605,694), PUBG: Battlegrounds (439,944), and Apex Legends (367,585).

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Steam has seen its record of concurrent users get broken again and again. The peak concurrent during Thanksgiving 2021 was at 27.3 million, and it has continued to grow and grow since then.
