Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hits one million concurrent players

Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has once again broken its concurrent player record.

As revealed on Steam Charts, the online-shooter broke one million concurrent players – 1,023,229.

Last month, Valve's popular title broke its concurrent player record, setting a new one at 901,681. However, earlier this month, the game broke that record by attracting 944,045 users.

Furthermore, Steam itself saw a new record last month with 19,107,803 concurrent users. Today, the storefront once again broke its record by hitting 20.3 million simultaneous users.

In February, Valve confirmed it was working on a new "auto-mute" feature for CS: GO. Those who get penalised by the feature will need to earn XP to get the penalty reversed. That same month, a new team-owned CS: GO league was announced.

One of the major esports events for the game will take place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil this year.

Earlier this month, a former pro-Counter-Strike player received a 116-year sentence in Brazil for fraud.
