Counter -Strike Celebrates 22nd Birthday
Counter – Strike, one of the most played FPS games in the world, celebrates its 22nd birthday.
Official Counter Strike : GO account celebrated the 22nd anniversary of the Counter – Strike series with a post on its official account. The original Counter – Strike was released on June 19, 1999 by Minh “Gooseman” Le and Jess Cliffe as a mod of the original Half-Life. Both names were soon hired by Valve, and the game was officially released for the Windows operating system on November 9, 2000.
The Game Keeps Growing
Since the game was released as a Half – Life mod 22 years ago, the Counter – Strike series has reached larger audiences with official new releases including Condition Zero and Source in 2004 and Global Offensive in 2012.
The Counter – Strike series has become one of the most iconic and most played games of all time, especially with its rise. The popularity of the CS:GO game has also had a significant impact on the growth of the Steam platform. CS: GO continues to rank above other games in the list of most played games on Steam. It also manages to take a leading position in active players and the highest number of players.
Although Counter – Strike players have been asking for better cheat protection and 128 tick servers for a long time, Valve continues to turn a blind eye to these requests from players. Although Valve ignores the requests of the players, the player base continues to grow.
