A few months after topping 9 million concurrent users online, Valve’s online gaming platform Steam has broken the record again. On May 10th during the early afternoon, PST there were more than 9.5 million users logged into the PC service at the same time. You can check out the Steam Stats page which currently reveals a mind-boggling 7,950,851 users online currently.

As usual, Valve’s Dota 2 is the most popular game on Steam. It recorded a peak user count of more than 900,000 users on Sunday followed by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with more than 548,000 concurrent users. Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 has been gathering its fair share of momentum as of late with more than 173,000 players online concurrently in the PC version.

For all the success Steam has garnered, the service was recently embroiled in controversy over a new initiative to price mods for games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The initiative backfired, leading to mods once again being available for free. What’s next for Steam in 2015? Stay tuned in the coming months to find out.
