Content Creators Earn Over $50M Through Steam Workshop

Valve announced today that it has paid out over fifty seven million dollars to the people who create content for its games (hats cool ).

When we launched the Workshop late in 2011, we expected that it would grow, but not that it would grow this much, this quickly. So far, the total payments made to individuals for the creation of in-game items sold in Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive have passed $57 million. This money was earned by over 1,500 contributors spread out across 75 countries.
