Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is one of the most played multiplayer FPS around and it has been the subject of many controversies since it got released back in 2012. After years of being amongst the most actively played games, CS:GO is finally shrinking in size.

Steam’s statistics revealed that PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUND has surpassed CS:GO in terms of active player count. It gets more interesting when the statistics found that 55% of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUND players used to play CS:GO 50% more than the average person. The glass breaking moment is when the statistics pointed out that these same players are now playing CS:GO 30% less.

The numbers are basically saying that the hardcore CS:GO players are gradually moving away from the game in favor of PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BATTLEGROUND. Some would say that it is about time for them to do so since CS:GO is starting to feel fatigue. On the other hand, the fans are blaming it on Valve for ruining CS: GO’s experience by holding out balancing updates.

Well, it won’t matter much anymore because if the trend is to continue, we may see CS:GO going into a sharp decline due to the players moving to PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BATTLEGROUND.
