CSGO is helping steam in reaching a new record number of concurrent players

CSGO is killing it at the moment

CSGO has been creating new records even before the world wide lockdown began due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

At this point in time, steam has seen its highest peak, concurrent player count, at over 20 million active players. Among that demographic, more than half of them are from Counter-Strike. To say that the coronavirus has made the world into a standstill would be a huge understatement.

Millions of people around the world have been stuck in their homes for some time now. Video games are one of the better coping mechanisms for those people. Due to the pandemic, more gamers are now online at a time than ever before in steam’s history.

So, it is not that hard to believe that steam is setting new records of concurrent players almost every day now. Ever since counter-strike became free-to-play, more people had a chance to experience the pure FPS experience. And most of them probably didn’t leave after their initial impression.

CSGO is really showing its staying power even after all these new BRs that are coming and disappearing from the limelight all the time. CSGO has the right mixture of brilliance that all age groups can appreciate.

With the current situation around the world, steam should be breaking their new records in no time and CSGO will be helping them reach that goal.
