CHARTS: CS:GO tops Steam charts as it hits 1.4m concurrent players

Valve's wildly popular shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive generated the highest revenue on Steam last week.

This news comes as the title hit 1.4 million concurrent players over the weekend, a new record for the smash-hit online shooter. It also comes amid rumours that a sequel to Valve's shooter is set to launch shortly, with a beta imminent.

Apex Legends rises five places this week to No.2, while Valve's Steam Deck console shoots up one position to reach No.3. Endnight Games' Sons of the Forest drops two places to hit fourth, the same dip as Destiny 2, which charts in No.5.

Warner Bros' Hogwarts Legacy hangs steady in sixth place, ahead of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, which returns to the Top Ten at No.7, likely due to a 60 per cent price cut in Ubisoft's publisher sale last week.

Fellow shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 rises one place to eighth, while pre-orders for Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake return to the Top Ten at No.9 thanks to new gameplay footage being released alongside a demo for the action-horror romp.

Rounding off the Top Ten is Red Dead Redemption 2.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending March 14th:

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
2. Apex Legends, EA
3. Steam Deck, Valve
4. Sons of the Forest, Endnight Games
5. Destiny 2, Bungie
6. Hogwarts Legacy, Warner Bros
7. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft
8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Activision
9. Resident Evil 4, Capcom (P)
10. Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar
