The number of games released on Steam doubled in 2015

A new survey has fortified the perception of a growing saturation of games on Steam.

According to EEDAR, nearly 3,500 retail and digital titles came to Steam in 2015 – more than twice the 1,500 launched in 2014. This was itself nearly triple the roughly 500 titles released in 2013, marking the biggest year-on-year jump for Valve's platform to date.

Back in 2015, the stat means that almost 10 new games hit Steam every day, highlighting the growing difficulty of stealing the limelight on the service.
