Counter-Strike Global Offensive has breached the million player mark once again in August 2022. This is the second time this year that CS: GO has seen more than a million concurrent players placing it firmly as one of the most popular titles in all of esports. 

As per data from Steamcharts.com, CS: GO saw 1,029,351 players on September 3. The game has been hovering around the 900,000 mark for a few months, but the sudden spike in players pushed the number to seven figures.

Currently, ESL Pro League is underway which features top tier teams competing against each other in a league format. Other than that, there’s not been any significant catalyst in terms of events or special occasions to have boosted the players numbers.

The CS: GO player count has seen signficant improvement in the past year with incremental increases almost every month. There was a period post February 2022 when the number of players saw a signficant drop – this time coincided with the Russian invasion of Ukraine which might have played a signficant factor in the drop in numbers.

Released in 2012, CS: GO continues to be one of the most popular games in esports. The FPS title has a long history dating back to the 1990s and has seen continued growth and development. Valve has released multiple versions of Counter-Strike with Global Offensive being the final one in 2012. 

As a game, CS: GO is one of the easiest ones to understand as anyone can play the game with a basic understanding of physics. In simple terms, you aim at the other person and shoot, aim at the head for more damage. 

Of Course there’s a lot more depth to the game mechanics, the economy and various strats in the game. But that is something new players do not have to worry about. 

From a viewers perspective, no other title (maybe with the exception of Rocket League) is as intuitive and easy to understand as CS: GO.

There’s been rumors of a Source 2 update for CS: GO for a few months now. More recently, multiple devs were seen playing the game and there have been data mined files with Source 2 references. 

However, whether or not CS: GO will see a Source 2 update is still up for debate and is unconfirmed news. 

Recently Dota 2 also got a boost in player numbers following the release of the Dota 2 battlepass. The Battlepass features new cosmetic skins as well as promises several new content post TI11.
