For the first time in eight years, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hit one million concurrent players. This record seems to have broken due to the recent coronavirus pandemic because many countries such as China, Spain, and others are under full lockdown. When people have to be home, it leads to more players playing video games. Since Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is free to play, many people picked it up to have some fun and wait out the virus.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive also tweeted out saying “Thanks a million.” to all their players for helping them achieve this milestone. Multiple organizations such as G2 Esports also thanked Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for being there supporting them.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has had its fair share of trouble as well.
