Steam releases "2020 Year in Review," reveals player numbers

Steam has revealed their 2020 figures in a post they call "2020 Year in Review." The company's fifth annual review includes some stats, including player numbers and most popular games.
The service broke new records with a whopping 120 million monthly active users and 62.6 million active users every day on average.

Steam recorded a peak to 24.8 million concurrent players, which happened during the bug-ridden Cyberpunk 2077 launch.

The situation the world has been for the past year has no doubt tremendously increased the usage of this online platform as well. A total game time recorded was 31.3 billion hours which is a massive 50.7% increase to the previous year with around 20 billion hours.

Not only was the year a success for Steam, according to the company it was good for the developers and publishers too. The number of games that grossed more than $100k increased by 36%. Seasonal sales also broke records.



As you can imagine, the data transferred coincides with the game time and increased over 50% to 25.2 exabytes. That's 25 200 000 000 000 000 000 bytes.
