On January 1st, support for CS:GO was discontinued. Valve will no longer release updates for the game or fix bugs.
However, the end of support does not mean that fans will no longer be able to play CS:GO. They can still launch the shooter through Steam by selecting the appropriate option in the CS 2 properties. However, there may be problems with the game coordinator.
On New Year’s Day, Valve also ended support for Steam on three operating systems – Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Company representatives recommend players upgrade to Windows 10 or 11. CS:GO was released in August 2012. It was replaced by CS 2, which was released in September 2023.
Outdated version of CS:GO
This is an outdated version of CS:GO. Support for this version will end on January 1, 2024. If you launched Counter-Strike 2 and found yourself here, your hardware configuration may not be compatible with Counter-Strike 2. For more information, visit Steam Support.
Valve has ended support for CS:GO
Players will still be able to continue playing CS:GO. To start the game you need to go to the Steam library menu. Right-click on the CS2 icon, select “Properties” and go to the “Betas” tab. Then select the “csgo_legacy” option from the list and launch the game.
CS:GO was released in 2012. Ten years later, Valve introduced Counter-Strike 2, an updated version of the shooter on the Source 2 engine. CS2 was released at the end of September 2023 after several months of beta testing.
On the developers’ website it was clarified that the end of support only means problems with the “game coordinator”, which may cause difficulties with access to inventory, servers, etc., but the game itself will still function and it will be possible to play it.
We say goodbye to an era that brought us so many joyful moments…
