This is the first time in the history of the game that it has witnessed more than 900,000 concurrent players. Last time the game witnessed such a massive surge was back in April 2016 during the MLG Major Championship: Columbus 2016.
CS:GO is going full steam ahead to probably make 2020 one of the best years for the FPS franchise. This could be due to a combination of things like the game becoming free-to-play in December 2018, followed by the release of the much-awaited Operation: Shattered Web, and the recently concluded BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season.
While other gaming titles like Dota 2 is seeing a decline in its userbase, the first-person shooter is flourishing like never before, creating new all-time records every few days.
