In its recent Year in Review report, Valve confirmed some impressive numbers for Steam. The storefront-platform has amassed nearly 95 million monthly active users, representing a huge ~5 million spike from 2018's 90 million MAUs.

What's more important than MAUs is actual play time, and Steam delivered in spades here. In 2019, PC gamers also played over 20 billion hours of Steam games. Steam also broke its previous record of simultaneous users at the start of this year with 18.8 million concurrent players online at the same time.

As of March 2019, the Epic Store has hit roughly 85 million active users. The number was no-doubt driven by the launcher's monthly free games as well as Fortnite's integration on PC.

Here's how Steam compares to other online subscription networks, as per Twitter user NextGenPlayer:

  • PlayStation Network - 103 million MAUs
  • Steam - 95 million MAUs
  • Epic Store - 85 million MAUs
  • Xbox LIVE - 65 million MAUs
  • Switch Online - 15 million subscribers
