The game managed to hit a new record of concurrent players on Steam three years after it was released on the platform.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was released back in 2018, however, it seems that the game is experiencing a new wave of popularity now – on November, 27, it hit a new milestone in concurrent player count and reached a new all-time peak of 66,492 players, according to SteamDB.
For comparison, the previous all-time peak was reached back in December 2019, when the title was just released on the Valve PC storefront – at the time, the record number of concurrent players was 55,271.
Since then, online in the Steam version of Red Dead Redemption 2 has become significantly lower but continued to show stable results – from 20,000 to 30,000, only occasionally rising to higher rates. For instance, a week ago the number of concurrent players didn't exceed 20,000 and at the time of writing, it reaches over 45,000.
Apparently, a boost in concurrent players happened thanks to the Steam Autumn Sale that takes place from November 22 to 29 and offers to purchase Red Dead Redemption 2 with a 67% discount – the largest cut in the price of all time.
