The new Steam Direct program came on June 13 this year to replace the outdated Steam Greenlight service, and over a thousand new games have been released on Steam.
According to the British company ICO Partners, only last week on Steam 215 games were released. On the graph below, you can estimate the growth in the number of games released by month:
When Valve announced Steam Direct, it stated that it expects a larger influx of games than with Greenlight. In addition, if necessary, Valve promised to make adjustments to the new service.
