Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is often the preferred recreation on Steam. For a few weird hours final evening, it was now not obtainable on Steam. CS:GO, and a seemingly random assortment of different Steam titles briefly disappeared from the shop, and no one appears to know why. Valve has acknowledged that it occurred, however hasn’t supplied any particulars on why.
At round midnight within the US on March 9, CS:GO was eliminated from the Steam retailer. A few video games like, er, Paws and Claws: Pet Vet and Section 8: Prejudice had been eliminated on the similar time, as had been DLC packs for all the pieces from Fallout: New Vegas to Black Desert Online. A handful of flicks and exhibits had been eliminated as effectively, together with Mad Max, Clerks, and Ghost within the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Truly a darkish time for our tradition.
As you may see on SteamDB, each title disappeared without delay, after which they had been all restored a little over two hours later. There was no obvious drop-off in CS:GO gamers throughout that interval, so it seems to be like this simply affected the shop web page – not the sport itself.
So far, this tweet has been Valve’s solely response.
