Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) is one of the most popular first-person shooter (FPS) games in the world. It has been around since 2012 and has a huge following of dedicated players. Recently, the game has hit a milestone as it set a new record for concurrent players, with more than 1 million people online at the same time. 

The record was set in CS: GO, where the number of simultaneous players reached 1 320 219 people beating the old record of 1 308 963 people. This is the highest number of simultaneous players ever. 

The record-breaking number of concurrent players comes after a series of updates to the game over the past few months. These updates have made the game more accessible to new players and more enjoyable for experienced players. The game also launched a battle royale mode in 2020, which may have played a role in increasing its popularity. 

The game's success is likely due to its unique combination of intense firefights, strategic team play, and a vibrant professional esports scene. CS: GO has been featured in many high-profile tournaments, such as the ESL Pro League and Intel Extreme Masters. The game is also quite popular with streamers, who often play the game on platforms such as Twitch and YouTube. 

CS: GO's recent peak of over 1 308 963 concurrent players is a testament to its enduring popularity. The game has been around for almost a decade, yet it remains one of the most popular FPS games in the world. With its various updates and impressive esports scene, CS: GO will likely remain a fan favorite for many years to come.
