Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) is a game that needs no introduction. As one of the most popular first-person shooters in the world, it has been setting records and breaking them for over a decade. Just a few days ago, it set a new high for concurrent users on Steam, and now, it has broken that record once again. With such a loyal and dedicated fan base, it’s no wonder that CSGO continues to be one of the most popular games on Steam.

Despite its age, CSGO’s popularity is showing no signs of slowing down, and fans of the game continue to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with. On February 11, CSGO set a new record for concurrent users on Steam when 1,320,219 players were online to play the game at the same time. However, this record was short-lived, as just eight days later, the game once again broke its own record, with 1,324,800 concurrent users on February 19. This new record was beaten by more than 4,000 players, which is an impressive achievement.

The popularity of CSGO is not just limited to the number of active players. For now, CSGO has almost 760,000 concurrent players, which puts it at the top of Steam’s user chart. The game is well atop Dota 2, which is placed second with 340,000 concurrent players, and Apex Legends with just over 300,000.

The surge in popularity for CSGO can be attributed to a number of factors, but one significant event that has contributed to the game’s success is the recent removal of the controversial ‘Doodle Lore’ CSGO skins. These skins, which were based on “stolen artwork,” caused a lot of controversy among the CSGO community, and their removal has been met with widespread praise.

In addition to this, CSGO continues to offer a great gaming experience for players. The game’s iconic maps, such as Dust 2 and Mirage, are still as popular as ever, and the gameplay is as engaging and competitive as it has always been. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has also been updated regularly with new features and content, keeping the game fresh and exciting for players.

Another factor that has contributed to the game’s success is its active community. The CSGO community is known for being one of the most passionate and dedicated in gaming, and this is reflected in the game’s thriving eSports scene. CSGO is one of the top competitive games, with tournaments held all over the world and a large following on streaming platforms such as Twitch. Overall, the continued success of CSGO is a testament to the game’s quality and the dedication of its player base. With its engaging gameplay, iconic maps, and regular updates, the title continues to offer an exciting and competitive gaming experience for players. The recent player count records are just the latest example of CSGO’s enduring popularity and success.
