Valve has already raised billions of dollars from the game

The franchise of Counter Strike is one of the most famous in the history of games, and the CS:GO, in particular, was and is still very successful among FPS fans, mainly due to the fact that it is a free game. Even so, a report showed that Valve has already raised around US$6.7 billion with the game.

It’s worth noting that we’re only talking about CS:GO. To get an idea, this value in direct conversion gives more than R$32 billionan enviable value for a game that doesn’t need to be purchased and doesn’t even give an advantage to players who buy items.
