Counter-Strike 2 reaches the Olympus of viewers on Twitch, but it is an achievement is useless
Counter-Strike 2 is the topic of the moment, and it is not for less. The sequel to shooter from Valve, which will arrive this summer as a free update, raises expectations wherever it goes and the Internet echoes it. Despite the fact that we have not known of its existence for even 24 hours, its announcement has raised the interest of its first installment and reaches, once again, the Twitch Olympus.
Although the shooter de Valve never had any problems, either on Twitch or on Steam, on the Amazon platform it is recovering the number of viewers it has lost. Just a few hours later, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has returned to numbers of 2020surpassing even the high point of that year. Of course, having not yet registered Counter-Strike 2 on the platform, it only affects the 2012 installment.
In total, it has seen a rise of between 200,000 and 300,000 viewers in just a few hours, starting at 5:00 p.m., if we look at the last 7 days. In relation to the last few months, CSGO has seen its “slump” from the month of January recovered and has reached its best numbers of 2021 with nothing less than a recent peak of 883,067 viewers.
This boom has also been reflected on YouTube. The first trailer for the game attracted no less than a million views in just a few minutes. Now, these data have skyrocketed considerably with no less than 3 and a half million views, placing itself in the number 17 of trending from YouTube.
As we have commented, until there is a category of the game once it is launched, or even before to take advantage of the effect of the beta, the achievement remains in no man’s land. But what is clear is that there is a desire for Counter-Strike 2 and Valve knows it, which is why it has opened this week the early access to the end game. At the moment, accessing this beta is complicated since Newell’s have not opened any registration and only those great CS:GO players have received keys.
