Valve has announced the top played games in 2019, going by simultaneous players. While they may not provide exact counts, it gives us a very good idea of what people were into in 2019.

As usual, there's no exact numbers and rankings provided by Valve, but they did break the games into rankings depending on how many simultaneous players they had. Of the games, most of the ones in the 100,000 simultaneous players list are old hats, like Grand Theft Auto V, Warframe, and DOTA 2. A couple of 2019 releases such as Total War: Three Kingdoms and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice managed to sneak their way into the list as well.
