Counter-Strike Ends Legacy Support; CS:GO Legacy Version and Refund Details

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is no longer available following the release of Counter-Strike 2, a new installment in the tactical shooter series. But a Legacy CS:GO Version is now available for players unwilling or unable to move on to the newer game, which is reportedly now the worst-rated Valve game ever. It's available as a beta, but the bad news is that support for this will conclude at the end of this year. There are details in this Steam Support Article, which also explains which macOS, DirectX 9, and 32-bit Windows gamers are eligible for refunds. Here's more on the Legacy Version:
As technology advances, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue support for older hardware, including DirectX 9 and 32-bit operating systems. Similarly, we will no longer support macOS. Combined, these represented less than one percent of active CS:GO players.

Moving forward, Counter-Strike 2 will exclusively support 64-bit Windows and Linux.

If you are unable to launch Counter-Strike 2 with your current hardware, you can access a legacy version of CS:GO. Support for this version of CS:GO will end on January 1, 2024.

CS2 is the lowest rated valve game? Wait what? This is a hugely upgraded and hugely anticipated release that was tested with "pros" for many months prior to get it right. Wtf is wrong these idiots on the internet? I'm just beside myself with how fking stupid these people are to review bomb such a major upgrade.

I think initially there was a big backlash against Left 4 Dead 2 as well. I myself wasn't too happy with it. Over time, though, Valve did exactly the right things, and it ended up very positive. If you essentially remove the need for the first while greatly expanding on it and making it better, that usually changes opinions.
