Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Was Accidentally Removed From Steam

If you were trying to download Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Steam earlier this morning, you were likely quite surprised to see the message, “Oops, sorry!” That’s because CS:GO was accidentally removed from Steam along with a bunch of other games in an apparent glitch over at Valve HQ.

We don’t have the full details of what happened, but SteamDB owner Pavel Djundik noted a sudden spike in games disappearing off the platform at around 2 AM EST. Included amongst the accidental takedowns were titles like Hellraiser: Judgment, Lawless, Ghost in the Shell 2.0, Beastmaster, Black Desert Online’s Gold package, and two New Vegas expansions Lonesome Road and Old World Blues.

And of course, CS:GO was also taken down. VideoCardz managed to grab a screen of Steam’s most popular title (according to concurrent player counts) suddenly and inexplicably disappearing from the platform.

Whatever went wrong, it looks to have been only temporary. CS:GO has since returned to Steam’s storefront and the nearly 800,000 players that were still in-game were unaffected by the glitch.

CS:GO wasn’t the only Steam game to be having issues lately. RuneScape suffered a problem where thousands of players were unable to log in. It took Jagex all weekend to narrow down the problem and it will be a bit longer before that issue has been totally resolved.

And if you were wondering if the new Monster Hunter RPG would be heading to Steam, we’ve got good news for you. Monster Hunter Stores 2: Wings of Ruin is getting a July Steam release date to coincide with its arrival on the Nintendo Switch, and it looks like Monster Hunter Rise will also get a Steam release in 2022.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.

The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
