After an explosive fourth major title win from Denmark’s Astralis, CS:GO fans are wondering when the next Major will be.
They usually wouldn’t have to wait for long, but as a result of Valve’s newly-adopted schedule, the next Major won’t be until May 11, 2020. This leaves a whopping nine months of downtime before Astralis can once again defend their title.
The location of the next Major hasn’t been decided yet, but it’s expected to have a reimagined format, according to Valve. The specific details are unavailable at this time, but it’s rumored to be a refined version of the current Major formula.
In the meantime, there’s plenty more CS:GO events coming up. There’s the BLAST Pro Series to look forward to, as well as ESL New York later this month. There’s also DreamHack Masters Malmö in October and the $500,000 CS:GO Asia Championships in November. These events aren’t quite as spectacular as a Major, but most fans will still enjoy watching them.
