To put it layman terms, Counter Strike Global Offensive utilizes some resources which the company thinks are of better use in other games.
Furthermore, he added that the company wants to pay proper attention to a number of other games which include; League of Legends, Rocket League, Call of Duty, and Halo.
Adding to that, he said, “What we wanna be able to do is say, if we’re tapping into those games, we’re talking about the absolute maximum we could be”.
He further expanded on the decision, mentioning the “amount of investment in not just cash but general resources to make Splash in a tough ecosystem like Counter Strike.”
Counter Strike is a legendary multiplayer game, which has had a long successful tenure. That being said, the game is still ranked in the top grossing games worldwide.
According to the recently revealed worldwide ranking for top grossing games on PC and consoles. Counter Strike Global Offensive still exists in the top 10. Which shows how the game still has a large audience.
With all that being said, what does it mean for Counter Strike Global Offensive? Does it imply that in near future, most of the companies shall be pulling resources from this game?
