The Main Point

The most popular games on Steam in 2020 are some of the most popular games in the world right now. There are just a few games, such as Minecraft, that aren’t included, as they are not on Steam. This has also really helped Steam, because they have set tons of new records for the most concurrent online players.

This year hasn’t been the best, but for gaming, it has been amazing. There are so many new people that have started playing video games this year. So, the most popular games on Steam may be a bit different than in past years. Steam just released their list of the largest and most profitable games on steam in 2020. You could probably guess what most of these are, but some of them I didn’t even know about.

What were these games?

Sadly, Steam did not order these lists, so we just know the games on them. For the games with the most concurrent users at once, we have Among UsDestiny 2 and PUBG. All of those games had over 200,000 concurrent players at once. That is a ton of people. And, for three games to have that many players at once is amazing. The games that were the highest grossing this year were Rainbow Six SiegeGTA5 and Monster Hunter World. For the most popular new releases of 2020, we have Crusader Kings 3Flight Simulator and Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord. Out of the last three games on this list, I had only heard of Flight Simulator. Also, Cyberpunk 2077 was one of Steam’s most played, largest new releases and one of the top selling video games of the year. That is crazy, because this game just came out.

How did this help Steam?

This greatly helped Steam this year, and Cyberpunk 2077 was probably the biggest helper of them all. The pandemic was also a huge help, as staying at home caused way more people to start playing video games. At the very beginning of the pandemic, Steam broke its old concurrent users record with 18,801,944 online users. That is an insane number, but since then, that record has been increased greatly. Just before Christmas, Steam broke that record by a ton. They had 24,776,635 concurrent users. That is an insanely high amount of people to be playing at once. This is likely due to the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 had just released and there had been a spike in Covid cases. Even with that, though, 24 million is still an insanely high number of concurrent users.
