While on the face of it, this might seem like a basic question, there are plenty of games released over the years that haven't had the sparkle or appeal of their predecessors. Call Of Duty, which bares similarities with Counter-Strike, is an example of this. Millions of gamers continue to play older versions of Call Of Duty rather than their new installments because of personal preference.

Counter-Strike Global Offensive benefitted from an excellent design that allowed gamers to play the game across various devices.

Ultimately, more people are drawn to the game, buying it and fueling even more popularity. Therefore, eSports added another layer to CSGO, which may have even surprised the developers and designers. This enhanced visibility and revenue means more significant amounts of profit aid the development of Counter-Strike 2.
