Despite facing a lot of criticism, Counter-Strike 2’s success is undeniable.
Specifically, in CS2 – the fastest way for gamers to own new skins is to buy crates. These items will open very “lucky” gifts and have a level of value and price depending on the user’s luck. Locks are needed to open chests, and they can only be purchased directly from Steam or other players. Also thanks to this lootbox system, Valve made a fortune with CS:GO before and now with Counter-Strike 2. Specifically, according to the latest statistics from the CS2 Case Tracker website, in 2023, Valve made up to 980,000,000 USD just for players buying keys to open chests.
Of course, because they are just digital keys, Valve costs almost nothing for production or maintenance and profits the entire amount of 980 million USD mentioned above. But remember, it doesn’t even include the 15% fee for each box transaction sold in the market between players.
When taking this into account, it is very likely that Valve earned more than $1 billion just from CS2 in 2023. This resounding success also explains why in recent years, Valve has almost not created any new games or projects.
