CS:GO broke its peak player count record yet again with 1.8M players

In March, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive smashed its all-time peak player count record when 1,519,457 people logged on following the announcement of Counter-Strike 2. That record has now been broken again, with SteamDB (opens in new tab) recording 1,818,773 players—a jump of almost 300,000.

What’s brought all these players to CS:GO? While cynics will suggest they’re bots, it’s likely that a significant amount are launching the game thanks to the final CS:GO Major and its tie-in rewards. Since the Paris Major begins on May 8, Valve has added its usual Pick’Em challenge, in which CS:GO players can attempt to predict the results. The closer your guesses are, the better the rarity of prizes.
