No cache on the next major

ESL published the regulations for the next major on CS:GO, which approved the list of maps to be used in the tournament. Contrary to community expectations of an updated version of Cache on the professional stage to ESL One Rio 2020, the map pool will remain the same.

For the first time, Cache has been shown as part of showmatch at ESL One New York 2019. Public release took place in early October, and a few days later the improved map replaced the original de_cache on the official servers of the game. The community assumed that the map would be used in the next major, which had more than six months left to start.

The first major in 2020, which will be held under the auspices of ESL, will take place from 11 to 24 May in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 24 of the world's best teams will fight for a share of $1,000,000 prize pool. The open round of regional qualifier for the prestigious championship will start January 31.
