Valve has published a list of 2021's top selling games on the Steam platform, dividing the top hundred titles into four brackets based on gross revenue made from game sales, DLC sales, and in-game transactions registered from January 1st, 2021 to December 15th, 2021.

The Platinum category of top selling games on Steam includes four new releases and several long-time fan-favorites. The new releases are Iron Gate's survival sensation Valheim, Amazon's MMORPG New World, 24 Entertainment's melee Battle Royale game Naraka: Bladepoint, and DICE's Battlefield 2042. Then there's the usual suspects: CS:GO, Dota 2, and Grand Theft Auto V have appeared in the Platinum category for six consecutive years; PUBG: Battlegrounds and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege for five; Destiny 2 for three. The category also features two highly popular live service games like Respawn's Apex Legends and Behaviour Interactive's Dead by Daylight.
