Unbeknownst to the community of players on Steam has registered a billion-dollar account. Steam ID Finder shows that the account was created on April 28.

The recognition of the “anniversary” account. As reported by PC Gamer, Valve did not respond to this event, perhaps because that number doesn’t mean much for the company as the number of active users daily or monthly basis. On the other hand, the players already actively congratulate the owner of “anniversary” profile and ask him for a friend.

Why the number of accounts on Steam is not an indicator? The problem of using number of accounts as a measure of the success of the Playground is that some of these accounts are blocked, others are second or even a third for the owner, and not just bots. Therefore, most appropriate for the assessment will look at current data current online.


The activity of users on Steam. We will note, last year the number of simultaneously active Steam users has exceeded 18 million, in some measure due to the huge success PlayerUnknown”s Battlegrounds, and since this figure is kept in the range of 15 million.

In 2018, the total number of players on Steam have averaged 47 million per day and 90 million per month, which is 23 million more than in the previous year.

Competition with Epic Games Store. Steam still remains the biggest marketplace for PC games, though now he has a competitor – Epic Games Store.

Distribution of revenue in the Epic Games Store, and Steam

However, it does not change the number of registered users, and in Steam there are still hundreds and thousands of games, but as more and more publishers prefer an alternative platform, the number of simultaneously active players in the future can significantly fall if this continues.
