Team Fortress 2 has been one of the most consistent games in the Steam lineup, with Steam Charts reporting around 50,000 players through their entire tracking data back through 2012. The averages have been up - to 61k - and down - to 41k - over that time, but the early parts of 2018 have seen the largest drop in TF2 history, with averages down as low as 36k in March.
