CS:GO’s next Paris Major will be its last

The announcement of Counter-Strike 2 (opens in new tab) earlier this week marked the beginning of a whole new era for what is perhaps the most storied shooter in videogame history. It will also mark the end of an era, as Valve announced today that the upcoming Paris Major 2023 will be the last Major Championship event ever played on that version of the game.

The Majors are mostly-annual CS:GO championship events, held in locales around the world and with big money prizes up for grabs. The previous championship event, the Rio Major 2022 (opens in new tab), had a $1.25 million prize pool, and the Paris Major will offer the same. Like the game itself, the Majors remain massively popular despite its age: It’s been running since 2013 and still sells out major arenas, and is broadcast around the world in multiple languages.
