As it approaches its ten-year anniversary in just a few short days, CS:GO keeps climbing to new heights and shattering its own records. On August 17, Steam Charts reported 1,039,889 concurrent gamers.
It was on this day that Valve released the unique birthday week update for CS:GO. As part of the celebrations for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s birthday week, which began on August 17, five new maps were added to the official matching pool. One of these new maps was the much-anticipated release of Tuscan, which is a popular map in Counter-Strike: 1.6.
The introduction of a community-created sticker collection known as the “10 Year Birthday Sticker Capsule” was, however, the highlight of the update. It included sixty-five designs that were submitted by members of the community and were shortlisted by Valve as part of the “CSGO10 Sticker Contest,” which was announced earlier this year in March.
CSGO Player Count 2022
Since May 2021, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has reached its highest peak, concurrent player count.
On August 21st, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which is widely considered to be one of the most successful video game titles of all time, will celebrate ten years old. The player base has gathered together in enormous numbers just in time for the commencement of its birthday week, bringing the average user count for the last 30 days to a solid 613,243.5 gamers.
However, the most impressive element is that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was also able to hit a peak of 1,039,889 concurrent players. This milestone was reached after only four months, having previously been accomplished in April 2022.
It is also the game’s biggest peak player count since May 2021, when 1,087,197 concurrent players were clocked playing CS:GO, making it the highest peak player count ever for the game.
A loss of 63,457.6 players had been seen back then, which amounted to a loss of 8.77%, but this time there is a gain of 18,790.4 players. This is an intriguing takeaway from what has been noticed, and it is important to note that.
It will be fascinating to watch whether this high continues to climb as we get closer to CS:GO’s tenth birthday or maybe even later this year anyplace near the IEM Rio Major 2022. If it does, it will be very intriguing.
