This summer marks Counter Strike: Global Offensive’s tenth anniversary, and it’s a surprise to see the game still popular in Esports and the community.
New competitors may have hampered some of CSGO’s popularity, but Valve’s shooter is swiftly regaining it. Despite a protracted decline that started in 2021, the iconic shooter game still draws in new players. Steam data show that counter-strike will restore its lost player base in 2022.
Players active in 2022
CSGO reached its peak player count of 901,107 in July 2022, per statistics gathered from Steam charts. The first-person shooter has succeeded in gaining more players than 13,000 since its last slump in March, April, and June, which caused it to fall short of rival Valorant.
Although the precise average numbers for CS:GO are unknown, the game is predicted to have an average of 35 million monthly players by 2022, according to reliable tracker active players. With over 70,000 users entering onto their steam accounts in just one month, CS:GO experienced its highest gain in the number of unique players. With this acquisition, CS:GO will soon surpass one million players.
The most important player in CS:GO declined steadily for six months in 2021. When CS:GO reached the million player mark, the online format struck quickly, wiping out 16.75 percent of its player base. PGL Antwerp Major assisted in recovering part of the lost count, but no steady increase was seen. But in 2022, CSGO is off to a fantastic start.
Peak of Counter Strike: Global Offensive
1,305,900 concurrent players in April 2020 marked the highest number of CSGO gamers ever. When the game lost 10% of its participants in the next month, this significant surge was lost forever. In November 2020, Valve’s shooter swiftly attained the 1 million milestone again, and it now appears to be inching toward it once more.
Further Status in 2022
Even though CSGO’s popularity has significantly declined, its player base continues to grow. The shooter from Valve is still one of the most talked-about titles in 2022, despite a slump.
The game maintains its top ranking on Steam thanks to a large user base. The number of hours that have been seen on Twitch also attests to how interesting and current it is. CSGO is the seventh most watched game in the world, according to Twitch stats.
