Steam‘s concurrent user count has just reached a new all-time high.

No doubt aided by the long holiday season, the gaming platform saw a massive surge in users over the past week, at one point reaching a record-breaking 27,942,036 users online at the same time according to SteamDB. Roughly eight million of them were in-game, while the remaining 20 million were simply on Steam browsing through its platform or messaging friends. Of those that were gaming, the largest portion was playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, while Dota 2 came in with the second-most players. The top 5 are then rounded out by PUBGApex Legends, and GTA V.

Other top-played games include Team Fortress 2RustARK: Survival EvolvedDestiny 2, and even the 2013 title PAYDAY 2. Interestingly, Halo Infinite only came in at 39th place, with Battlefield 2042 not even making it into the top 100.

Elsewhere in gaming, Halo Infinite‘s lead narrative designer has left 343 Industries for Riot Games.
