Heroic Celebrates Counter-Strike's 25th Birthday with Leonardo DiCaprio-Inspired Humor

Representatives from Heroic made light-hearted remarks about Counter-Strike's birthday, joking about a meme involving actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who famously avoids dating women older than 25 years.

"Leonardo DiCaprio said that he won't be playing Counter-Strike anymore, now that it has turned 25 today."

On June 19, Counter-Strike celebrated its 25th anniversary. It was on this day in 1999 that the first public version of the mod for Half-Life was released. The mod was developed by two individuals — Minh Le and Jess Cliffe.
