Can you still play CS:GO in 2024 and Beyond?

Valve’s updated shooter game, Counter-Strike 2 has finally been released. The new game has a ton of improvements over the previous Counter-Strike: GO game. While the new game has good and necessary improvements, but one question arises. Can players go back and play the older Counter-Strike: GO?

Let’s find out.

Will you be able to Play Counter-Strike: GO after Counter-Strike 2’s release?

The short and straight answer to this burning question is no. You will no longer be able to play Counter-Strike: GO anymore. The game on the Steam client has been updated to display Counter-Strike: 2.

If you do take a look at the Steam page for Counter-Strike 2 and take a peek at the release date for the game, it still displays CS GO’s release date – 21st August 2021.

Will CS GO Progression Transfer to Counter Strike 2?

So you cannot play CS: GO anymore. The last time you played the game is the actual last time you got to enjoy Counter-Strike: GO. But, what happens to all the progression, time spent, skins, and stats that you have achieved in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive? Valve has stated that all of these things will be transferred over to Counter-Strike 2. So, you can simply continue from where you left off in CS: GO.

While everyone will sit back and enjoy all the good times spent playing with friends and randoms in Counter-Strike: GO, it is time to move forward toward Counter-Strike 2 and create even more memories. Counter-Strike 2 has improved in several ways. You can see that it has got a modern styled UI, better-looking maps, blood effects, sound effects as well a few little visuals
