Valve still regularly updates the game, both with smaller balancing patches and larger content additions.
With the rise of games like PUBG, COD, MLBB, and other multiplayer games this game faced huge competition but it was able to maintain its dominance as various games like PUBG, MLBB, and so on got banned in India, thus opening a way for VALORANT and CS: GO success.
